The Ontario government on Friday announced almost $90 million for new daycare spaces — as well as new daycare space — in schools.

“Schools deliver one of our most cherished services — publicly funded education — and school buildings are ideally located within our communities to deliver additional public services,” said Education Minister Liz Sandals in a statement.

“These investments and regulatory changes are an important part of our vision to unlock the potential of community hubs and make Ontario the best place to work, live and raise a family.”

Some $20 million will go toward child-care spaces and $18 million to renovate child-cares themselves.

The remaining $50 million will be used to upgrade or renovate space in schools for public use, such as mental health supports or other community agencies, to provide a base for creating so-called “community hubs.”
