Child Care

The Township of Zorra is taking steps to support our community's response to COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) and measures taken by Southwestern Public Health. We are monitoring our operations daily to ensure we are taking the right actions to protect our residents, employees and visitors. Visit our COVID-19 page for regular updates.

The Day Nurseries Act

Licensed child care in Ontario is regulated by the Provincial Government under the Day Nurseries Act. The Day Nurseries Act regulates and sets minimum standards for such things as staff to child ratios, health and safety, outdoor playground space, indoor space and staff qualifications.

To find out more about the Day Nurseries Act and the Provincial role in child care you can access the Ministry of Children & Youth Website.

Parents who wish to contact the Ministry of Children & Youth Services (MCYS) about any aspect of their child's care, may call toll free at 1-866-821-7770.
