We wanted to take this opportunity to increase awareness of the new program offered by the City of Toronto: The Child Care Stabilization Grant is available through a onetime grant funding program from Toronto Children’s Services. Children’s Services will direct funding to recognize costs to licensed child care operators associated with the transition to full-day kindergarten (FDK).

Our new Spring/Summer menu is launching on Monday April 29th!
To celebrate the new menu Food for Tots conducted a taste testing session for new menu items at Squirrels Nest Child Care Centre. The children had the opportunity to sample new items including our grilled fish tacos, grilled chicken breast caprese, WW taco pizza and black currant granola chews. The smiles and (almost) empty plates said it all… the menu items were a hit!
