Child Care Spaces

Licensed Spaces vs Child Care Demand

Are there enough licensed spaces to meet demand for child care in Peel?

Due to parental choice to access alternative care (such as informal, unlicensed or parental care), not all families look for licensed child care.

In addition, among those families looking for licensed child care, not all require a full-time space. For instance, if two children in demand of child care were only looking for part-time care, they would together only need one full-time licensed space.

As there will always be a limited number of licensed child care spaces in Peel, total demand for child care will always exceed the number of licensed child care spaces.

In Peel, there are not enough licensed spaces to meet demand for infants and toddlers, particularly in Brampton. There are, however, more licensed spaces than demand in all three area municipalities for the preschool age group.
