Board President’s and Executive Director’s Report

Welcome to Network’s celebratory 30th year in providing licensed, early years and child care services to families with young children in Toronto.

Thirty years ago, this past September, Network launched the beginning of what has become a child care organization which has provided dedicated, licensed and exceptional care, to thousands of children and families throughout Toronto.

We are extremely proud to report that with our measured growth and stability coupled with integrity and success, we have continued to meet the challenges and restrictions of this past year. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about the need for everyone to be resilient and resourceful as we pivoted, became “virtual” and “met” each other in both new and unique ways. Personal protective equipment and physical distancing remain as part of the aftershock of this virus to which numerous loved ones were lost, including those among us at Network. All the while, Network has remained true to our values that every child is a unique individual and deserves the best child care program possible despite these incredible impediments and restrictions. There is no doubt that Network’s continued success would not have been achieved without the dedicated and tireless efforts of Network’s talented Educators, Staff and affiliated Home Child Care Providers.

As we look back to Network’s 2020 calendar year, which is a reflection of this Annual Report, a global pandemic was declared, and the World required a restructuring of how to move forward through this elusive and incredibly difficult challenge. Schools and child care sites were closed while we considered how as a society we would educate and support our children while remaining fearful of what the future months would bring. Slowly, the movement of everything to being “online” took hold, and Network too responded with instrumental creativity to keep everyone safe. Virtual learning, through every type of electronic device, became the realm of education and care, delivered in a positive and safe manner, to children throughout our Organization. Network’s website and online portals brought hours of content which would delight, educate, and keep children happy while we waited out the many months of uncertainty. As Spring 2020 turned to Summer 2020, the Ontario Government provided direction for licensed child care programs to begin reopening with stringent restrictions which Network met at every juncture. Gradually as the year came to a close, Network had welcomed many children and families back to “in person” care as the need for children to learn and grow in their newly defined “cohorts” became our new-normal in delivering child care. Network’s resilient and exceptionally resourceful Staff and affiliated Home Child Care Providers met these challenges with pride and determination ensuring they could provide high-quality care as safely as possible.

Network’s resiliency was also positively challenged during the year 2020, as Network invested in a number of capital projects to greatly improve the delivery of child care to several of its sites. Work began at Network’s Group, Just Kids and Jubilee Child Care Centres which received funding from the City of Toronto Children’s Services, to create Infant Care settings within these Centres. The Centres themselves also received necessary upgrades which successfully enhanced the child care environment for all children at these sites. Network also began the relocation of its Home Child Care Program Office, to be housed in the same building as Network’s Satellite Child Care Centre. This space offered the Staff a new venue from which to continue to support Network’s affiliated Home Child Care Providers. Finally, work also began at Network’s main office which had required many necessary renovations for many years. While many of Network’s Staff safely continued to work remotely during 2020, the main office space received an environmental overhaul which continued into the New Year.

As we plan for Network’s future growth in this new decade, we would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the ongoing assistance and support and express our deepest gratitude to the Ministry of Education, the City of Toronto Children’s Services, and the Toronto Catholic District School Board. Certainly, without the necessary funding which Network received from the City of Toronto Children’s Services, the capital projects, which were mentioned earlier, would not have been possible.

We would also like to extend our most sincere thanks and appreciation to all parents and families who have trusted Network to care for their children, particularly during the most difficult pandemic which the World has experienced in a century. Their confidence in our programs and in our Educators has been both impactful and crucial to Network’s success as we navigated the year through 2020 into 2021.

Lastly, a very warm and heartfelt thank you to Network’s Board of Directors and Advisors for their thoughtful insight and committed leadership as well as all the individuals and community partners who have contributed to Network’s advancement over the past year! As our Organization reflects on this past year, we at Network remain steadfastly committed to delivering safe child care of the highest possible calibre throughout all our programs. Network was founded on strong principles, and we are proud to uphold those principles with excellence, responsibility, resiliency, and integrity.

Testimonials



“Upon searching for a daycare in the midst of a pandemic I really thought there would be no hope finding somewhere accepting new enrolments. Thankfully, I was referred to Dane and the experience has been nothing short of amazing. My daughter has now been at Dane for 6 months and she loves it, she loves her teachers and her classmates, and I say this confidently, she has never had a bad day.”

—Sasha D., Parent at Dane Avenue Early Years Learning & Child Care Centre




“We are so grateful to be part of the Network Child Care Family! My daughter, Azalia, has thrived so much at Bendale Acres. She is learning so much and continues to surprise me with new things she discovers with her teacher everyday. I see a huge difference in all her domains from the very first day she started in the toddler room. Thank you, Network Child Care, for having amazing staff and for having a positive vision for the children!”

—Stephanie T., Parent from Bendale Acres CCC

A Look Back on 2020 & COVID-19

In January 2020, the media began to report on the emergence of a dangerous new virus. Gradually, the World Health Organization (WHO), who’s primary role is to direct international health within the United Nations’ system and to lead partners in global health responses, began to raise concerns about the spread of the virus. By early March the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic and life as we knew it was irrevocably transformed.

As with all daily activities and operations, Network Child Care Services (Network) was confronted with the need to take immediate measures to ensure the safety of its community.

In the middle of March, in accordance with the directions of the Ministry of Education and the City of Toronto Children’s Services and Toronto Public Health, Network was obliged to suspend all its programs and services due to the outbreak of COVID-19. This decision impacted Network and hundreds of other child care operators around the city leaving nearly 80,000 children without care. The initial hope was that Network’s operations would be suspended for a short period of time but gradually everyone came to realize that the closure would extend for a much longer period.

Additionally, with the guidance and support from its Board of Directors, Network’s management had to implement a policy where all administrative staff would work from home or go on administrative leave until it was safe to return to work. This quickly became our new reality and was a difficult decision that Network did not take lightly.

Although services to our Families were suspended, Network wanted to provide support in the safest way possible. Staff worked diligently and tirelessly to enhance Network’s online platform and create a Family Resource portal. This portal was accessible through our website and families were able to view various resources such as pre-recorded, interactive “Music and Movement”, reading, art and design video sessions to support the new “learning from home” model. Network also initiated regular communications with its Families, Educators, Staff and affiliated Home Child Care Providers, so that it could share information and updates on all the various measures that were being introduced by both the federal and the provincial governments. Centre Supervisors and Home Child Care Consultants maintained contact with families and affiliated Home Child Care Providers directly over the telephone or virtually to extend any support and respond to any inquiries.

At the end of May 2020, Ontario and Ottawa reported that the severe COVID-19 restrictions would begin to be lifted on a very gradual basis. That meant that Network had to undertake intense and significant training in relation to the wearing and implementation of personal protective equipment (PPE), physical distancing measures in the child care environment, extensive new cleaning procedures and practices, and education on all policies and safety measures related to managing COVID-19. By the end of June 2020, it was determined that child care centres could resume “in person” care with strict capacity limits. It was evident that going back to work for Network staff would be fundamentally different in many aspects.

To support Network’s various emergency measures, its Human Resources Manager struck a Staff committee with representatives from all its divisions. Its specific mandate was to brainstorm, consult and determine the needs of all employees. Similarly, the Home Child Care Division organized an affiliated Provider “Town Hall” meeting to identify the needs and requirements for the reopening of Home Child Care locations.

In conjunction with the Human Resources Committee and the Home Child Care Division, Network’s Management worked with an external consultant to formulate a comprehensive reopening plan, which was then presented to Staff and affiliated Home Child Care Providers through various “Town Hall” meetings.

Network’s affiliated Home Child Care Providers began to reopen very gradually in July 2020. Care at Network’s Centres also resumed at a reduced capacity over the same period. With the return to “in person” learning in school during the month of September 2020, Network continued to ensure that all health and safety measures were strictly adhered to at all times.

Throughout 2020, all staff worked diligently to ensure that Network’s Child Care Centres and Home Child Care locations adhered to the strict public health measures, as mandated by the Government agencies including limits on capacity, and enhanced screening and cleaning. They all received the necessary training on the COVID-19 Guidelines, the enhanced policies and procedures, and the use of personal protective equipment PPE to ensure the safe return of the children.

The Network Community – Families, Staff, Educators, Managers, and affiliated Home Child Care Providers –are to be commended for their resiliency, unwavering support and commitment to ensuring the safe operation of its child care services.

2021 Iniatives

Network to see completion of renovations and licensing of all upgraded child care Centers & Head Office. These upgrades will add more child care spaces to our centres, as well bring a rejuvenated and modernized look to our administrative office.

Complete relocation and begin renovation of HCC office located above Satellite Centre. Our goal is to have this renovation complete before the year end and establish a modern, comfortable working environment for our HCC staff.

Network to begin implementation of Storypark app. Employing a child care app that would improve communication and family engagement has been a goal for Network for some time. With the challenges of COVID-19, now is the ideal time to implement a tool such as Storypark to better serve our families and empower our educators.

Integrate digital COVID-19 screening across organization. In a year of immense change and new policies, Network aims to implement virtual COVID-19 screening across the organization. This digitization will reduce paperwork, increase staff availability and greatly improve efficiency when screening our children and staff.

Re-certify all child care staff in First Aid. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Network was unable to hold events of any kind, including First Aid/CPR training, elements of which much be conducted in person. Network hopes to complete an organization-wide recertification of Standard First Aid and CPR Level – C/ AED.

2021 will be significant year for Network, as it is our organizations 30th year! This is a tremendous accomplishment for any organization, and Network will mark this occasion in the safest way possible within COVID-19 considerations.
