Toronto Children's Services sets up shop at CNE
  
Toronto Children's Services will provide a one-stop shop at the Canadian
National Exhibition for parents looking for information on child care. The
Children's Services exhibit at the Kids World tent will feature a wide variety
of materials to help parents learn about the child-care options available to
them. As well, caseworkers will be on-site to help parents determine what is
best for their child, and to begin the process of applying for child-care
subsidies.

This exhibit is part of an ongoing outreach initiative by Toronto Children's
Services to promote the value of licensed child care and to provide parents
across Toronto with the information they need to make informed choices. To
complement the exhibit, transit shelter posters across Toronto will invite
parents to call 416-392-KIDS or visit http://www.toronto.ca/children to gain
more information on quality, licensed child care in Toronto.

Toronto Children's Services manages a network of over 40,000 licensed child
care spaces in directly operated centres, and through purchase-of-service
agreements with private centres and home child care providers. It is committed
to promoting the best start for Toronto's future leaders, and to helping
parents learn about the service options and financial resources that may be
available to them. Through outreach activities like the CNE exhibit and the
transit shelter campaign, Toronto Children's Services is sending an important
message that, in the City of Toronto, kids and quality matter.
