Message To Our Families (COVID-19)


Dear Families,

Network remains dedicated to your family’s well being, as our programs remain closed. In its communication of Monday June 8th, 2020, the Ontario Ministry of Education has advised that there will be an extension of the emergency measures for licensed child care to Friday June 19th, 2020. Network Child Care Services is therefore obliged to keep its operations and programs closed until Friday June 19th, 2020.

Given the fluidity of this particular timeframe, please be advised that we will provide up to date information to you in a timely manner as it becomes available to us should this closure date change.

In the meantime, we take this opportunity to provide you with the following information:

  1. Parents will not be charged child care fees for services which have not been provided to you during the time in which Network’s programs have been closed.
  2. Parents’ cheques for the month of April will not be cashed on April 1st, 2020 until we return to providing child care services.
  3. Network has initiated a portal on its website which provides ease of access to families who are seeking information resources and interesting activities for their children while they are at home.

We thank you very much for your understanding. These are unprecedented times and we hope you appreciate that we are doing everything we can to respect the directions we are receiving from the City of Toronto Children’s Services and its government partners. Most importantly we will strive to do everything we can to keep the children in our care and our staff free from the COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Please feel free to contact us should you require additional information or if you have any inquiries. For Child Care Centres, please call or email your Centre’s Supervisor (see Centre Contact List). For home Child Care, please contact your Network Quality Assurance Consultant or email the Home Child Care Supervisor, Lisa Guarini at

Once again, we are sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused and thank you for your understanding.

Spyros Volonakis
Executive Director
