The Trillium Party of Ontario believes we must allow for quality, affordable, and sustainable daycare for working parents. There are many qualified persons who are responsible and in many cases, and have had thousands of hours’ worth experience in dealing with and raising children.
Our mission will be to provide comfortable, competent and safe daycare to working families across Ontario. Our focus is based on providing work opportunity for caring daycare providers without the onerous burden of over government regulation. We believe that a degree from a college or university is not the most important aspect of being a daycare provider; but more importantly, being a loving, caring, and responsible individual is.
We will remove the barriers that intimidate and prevent good people from opening Home Daycare Facilities:
- Every home daycare facility will be registered / licensed using a central database. This licensing will be done done every year at a minimal cost and pending a facility inspection.
- Every person residing in the home daycare address must have a police back ground check.
- A basic first aid course must be completed by every employee / caregiver at a minimum, every two years
- Every child that is being cared for in the facility, must be updated as the children are registered for care.
The Trillium Party believes that it is important to bring the “underground” daycare industry to the light by offering tax incentives to parents for enlisting their children in registered daycare providers. Parents will receive any updates regarding complaints or concerns regarding their daycare providers as they occur. Complaints and concerns will be able to be made by an anonymous method so as to not have “whistle blowers” being fearful of retaliation toward their child.
The Trillium Party believes at its core that solutions to the Day Care concerns can be provided by the people who know their children best…their Parents. All the government has to do is get out of their way.
