Network Child Care Services
Network is a non-profit child care organization, licensed by the Ministry of Education to provide high quality child care services and programs to children and families in our Early Years Learning and Child Care Centres, Licensed Home Child Care Premises, Before and After School programs and Onsite Event Child Care services across Toronto and the GTA.
Network Child Care Services was established in 1991 as a home child care organization. Just as our communities grew and changed over the years, we responded to an ever-growing need for equitable and inclusive access to quality child care.
Through the years there have been continuous changes in family dynamics, expansion of cultural and ethnic diversities in the community, developments in education, and ongoing changes to the rules and regulations that govern Early Years Child care, Network has expanded its services to more than 1,600 children and families across the GTA.
Today, we offer a wide variety of progressive child care services and early learning programs to support families in meeting their child’s academic and child care needs.
In 2021, we celebrated 30 years of delivering quality child care
Network Child Care Services partners to provide every advantage for families through the provision of exceptional early learning and development experiences for their children so they all have the same opportunity to thrive and be fulfilled as part of a community of diverse needs.

As Network’s Executive Director over the past 25+ years I can personally attest to the labour of love seen in every aspect of Network’s activities.
With an enrolment of over 1,600 children and families, it takes tremendous dedication and tireless effort by our Early Childhood Educators, our support Staff, and our affiliated Home Child Care Providers to meet the needs of each and every child. We recognize that every child’s early years are of utmost significance and must be supported and enriched with the best possible early years program. At a time when the rate of learning is occurring at lightning speed, it is essential for Network to stay ahead of, and embrace, new trends and directions. To place every child at the 'centre' of our operations is to offer the best possible programs and care in their very critical formative years.
Whether you are looking for an early years and child care program for your own family or an on-site child care service for your conference or special event, please take the time to get to know us through these web pages and contact us for a personal visit or orientation.
