Children's Services 

Welcome to the City of Brantford, Children's Services

Our Mission is to maintain a leadership role in planning and management of the child care system in both the City of Brantford and the County of Brant by:

  • Putting the needs and best interests of children first
  • Promoting standards of excellence in early childhood education, care and support
  • Meeting the needs of children and their families for quality, flexible, accessible, and affordable services
  • Planning and managing services that are responsive to community needs

Changes are coming to the Early Learning Centres

*Parents and caregivers across Brantford and Brant County were being asked to complete a survey about early learning programs for children and their families in our community. THE SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED. Thank you for your participation.

The Ministry of Education recently announced a provincial plan to integrate and transform all Ministry funded child and family programs by 2018. The province currently funds four programs that offer a variety of family support services at different locations:

  • Ontario Early Years Centres;
  • Parenting and Family Literacy Centres;
  • Child Care Resource Centres; and
  • Better Beginnings, Better Futures.

For more information regarding the transformation process, call Michelle Connor, Manager of Community Partnerships at the City of Brantford
