What the city’s childcare needs is some good old-fashion promotion

The National Post

An interesting article published on November 10th,2012 in the National Post correctly identifies the crisis in Ontario's child care system but emphasizes short-term rather than long-term solutions.

The article acknowledges many of the current challenges families face when searching for child care in Toronto -

"Daycare fees and wait lists are a huge issue — the cost for childcare can be prohibitively expensive, and those who qualify for a subsidy must get in line behind 22,000 others.

The obvious solution here is increased funding (a 2007 report by the OECD ranks Canada 39th out of 40 countries for its public spending on childcare)..."

While acknowledging the long-term need for increased funding to create more spaces and make child care more affordable, the article suggests that in the short-term, smaller investments are needed in promotion & more user-friendly websites. To read the full article, click here.

    I read this article and I really like the suggestions they are given, We need to promote child care on social media because it’s a great way to increase the funding for daycare, a working woman cant left their kids at home so it’s really very necessary to raise the awareness of daycare. We need to post an article on different fashion sites like Amazon, eBay, https://www.reecoupons.com/view/mixxmix and many others where people can easily read because nowadays people prefer to do shopping from online stores so its a great way to raising the fund.
