Ontario’s Ministry of Education is proposing that infants, toddlers & preschoolers in licensed child care centres be cared for in larger groups at younger ages with fewer staff.

Parents, advocates and early childhood educators are mobilizing to fight these major changes. CUPE Ontario encourages all its members and allies to TAKE ACTION NOW.

Please PRINT, SIGN & SHARE this petition to stop the proposed changes to the age groupings, staff/child ratios and group sizes. This is a paper petition to the legislature, so it requires real physical names, addresses (including postal codes) and signatures. Completed petitions can be sent to the address on the bottom of the petition sheet.

Deadline for submission: March 23, 2016
