School boards must provide free before and after school babysitting services starting Sept. 2017

Starting in September 2017, schools will have to provide before and after school care for students up to the age of 12, according to Associate Minister of Education Indira Naidoo-Harris.

Naidoo-Harris, who focuses on early years education and child care, said her goal is to increase access to child care programs.

“That’s why we’re making it mandatory starting September 1, 2017 for school boards to provide before and after school programs for all children between the ages of four and 12,” she said in a statement emailed to CBC News.
