CWELCC Disclaimer

In 2022, Ontario signed the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement (CWELCC) with the Government of Canada. Significant new federal investments through this agreement will support: fee reductions, increasing the number of licensed child care spaces, addressing barriers to providing inclusive child care, and supporting the early childhood workforce. As of October 2022 the Montessori School of Cambridge has opted into CWELCC for our Toddler and Primary Programs.
