Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Please read the advisory sent to all childcare providers by the Ministry of Education: 

Earlier today, the Government of Ontario announced that, following the winter break, all Ontario schools will be closed to students for at least two weeks.  

Between January 3-14, 2022, schools will be closed to students. From January 5-14 students will participate in remote learning. This is in an effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, schools are expected to reopen to students for in-person learning on January 17, 2022.

Before and after care programs will not operate while schools are closed to students. Therefore, Tuesday, January 4, 2022 will be the last day of childcare.  

Please note, during this period of remote learning, free emergency child care will be provided for school-aged children of health care and other eligible frontline workers. These locations have yet to be determined.

If you have any questions or require further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me,

Kind regards,

High Birch Childcare & Learning Centre Inc.
