Throughout 2019, Brampton will see four new centres including Earlsbridge Plaza in Mount Pleasant, Springdale, Brampton Southwest Library and Mayfield/Bramalea.

“Peel’s Early Years and Child Care Service System Plan (2019- 2024) was informed by extensive consultation with parents and key stakeholders who identified five key priorities to respond to the current and future needs of children and families,” said Finn.
“This Plan identifies priority areas for action with the goal of creating a more affordable, inclusive, high quality early years and child care system which is accountable and accessible to all children and their families,” added Finn.
