[Day Care in Canada - 1982.]
Department of National Health and Welfare, Ottawa (Ontario). National Day Care Information Center.
The three reports collected in this document focus on day care in the Canadian provinces, specifically addressing: (1) "Provincial Funding of Day Care Services"; (2) "Day Care Spaces in Canada - 1982"; and (3) "Provincial Day Care Requirements." The first report provides summary outlines of the mechanisms used by each province or territory to finance day care services. It is pointed out that while all Canadian provinces and territories provide financial assistance for day care services through subsidies, grants, allowances, flat rates, and other provisions, funding mechanisms vary considerably from one province to another. The second report lists full-time day care spaces in Canada by province, by sponsor (public, nonprofit, or commercial), and by age of children enrolled. The third report specifies, for each province, number of meals or snacks required for given periods of time, indoor and outdoor space requirements per child, and minimum staff/child ratios by age of child. All three reports are provided in both English and French versions.
