Toronto daycare ratings go public
Sounds like a great idea to me. I hope other municipalities follow suit.
Toronto has become the first municipality in Canada to post ratings of daycare centres on the web – some 650 of them.
The city conducts at least two random spot checks of centres with subsidized spots every year, rating them on a long list of criteria including interactions with teachers, learning activities, types of toys and food served.
The rating system, based on specific categories, measures 650 of the 900 daycares that receive funding for subsidized spaces. Twenty-two staffers conduct inspections every year, but this is first time the information is being made public.
