Ontario backs down on daycare changes

TORONTO — Ontario’s education ministry has backed off from a controversial daycare proposal as well as a pause it had put on admissions to schools for deaf, blind and severely learning disabled students.

Education Minister Liz Sandals said Wednesday that the government received “extensive” feedback on proposed new daycare regulations and they will not be implemented as posted.

The ministry will take another look, after there were concerns raised about new child-care age brackets and staff-to-child ratios, Sandals said.
