Toronto Children's Services offers fun for kids, info for parents at CNE
  
Toronto Children's Services will offer fun activities for children and
information for parents at an interactive exhibit at the Canadian National
Exhibition (CNE). The exhibit, in the "Child Awareness" tent in the Kid's World
area will feature a wide variety of materials to help parents learn about the
child care options available to them. As well, on-site caseworkers can provide
information on these options and on applying for child care subsidies. The
exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily for the duration of the CNE.

Parents and children will have the opportunity to experience a quality early
learning setting first-hand. From August 22 to August 29, Toronto Children's
Services resource educators will be supervising a wide range of special
activities in the tent's play and learn area.

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, posters on transit shelters and recycling bins across
Toronto invite parents to call 416-392-KIDS (5437) or to visit www.toronto.ca/children for more
information on quality licensed child care in Toronto.

Toronto Children's Services manages a network of over 50,000 licensed child
care spaces across Toronto. It is committed to ensuring that every child has
the right to childhood experiences that promote their chances of developing
into healthy, well-adjusted and productive adults. Through outreach activities
like the CNE exhibit and the poster campaign, this division is sending the
important message that at the City of Toronto, kids and quality matter.
