The government is protecting the health and safety of students during the COVID-19 outbreak by keeping schools closed for the rest of this school year.
Licensed child care centres and EarlyON programs will also remain closed for the safety and protection of children and families and staff through Stage 1 of the Framework for Reopening the Province. However, the government intends to reopen childcare in stage two using strict health measures.
We also unveiled an expanded seven-point summer learning program for Ontario students to ensure those that participate remain intellectually stimulated through the summer months. To help improve access to remote learning, Ontario is partnering with 34 organizations and private businesses, along with school boards, to address key needs among educators, students and their families during the COVID-19 outbreak.
