The Ministry of Education has implemented a wage enhancement initiative in the licensed child care sector in Ontario. The intent of this initiative is to increase the wages of child care staff, help retain Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE’s) in the early learning and care sector and to support and stabilize the child care system in Ontario.
Child care operators that currently hold an agreement with the County of Huron are now able to access the application template below to apply for a 2017 Wage Enhancement Grant. The completed applications are to be completed and submitted to the address below by March 31, 2017.
Operators are asked to complete a template for each licensed program. The same template is to be used for all programs.
