The Province of Ontario announced on June 9, 2020 child care operators are allowed to re-open as early as June 12, 2020 provided they meet health and safety recommendations and guidelines as established by The Ministry of Education and public health. Consequently, the County of Huron is no longer accepting applications for Emergency Child Care, and current emergency child care services will end on June 26, 2020.

Child care operators through our the  County of Huron will open individually as they meet these guidelines.
