Microsoft PowerPoint Clip Art PicturePetition to the Honourable Premier Kathleen Wynne Support our children through more funding for early learning. Through funding we will be able to create more spaces in daycares for children and create a better quality of childcare. “Every dollar invested in early childcare programs can provide up to $4-9 in returns to the general public” (Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care. 1981). “There is long waiting list to get a subsidy in the city of Toronto. From 2008 to 2012, the waiting list has grown from 14,983 children to 20,926 children waiting to receive subsidies” (Toronto Children Services. n.d).What do we want? Create more spaces for children in early learning centres Create a long term plan in Ontario comparable to plans in Manitoba and Quebec which have sustainable, affordable, and accessible childcare available to families Subsidies provided by the government for childcare are not dependent on net income (i.e. $10 a day flat charge for childcare)Name Address Signature______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Your help can make a difference!
