Child Care Centres


George Brown has been monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak in Toronto, and around the world. While we don’t have any reported cases on campus or in our Child Care Centre facilities, your health and safety is our top priority. That’s why, as a precaution, we will be closing our George Brown College Child Care Centres until further notice.

High Quality Child Care

If you are a family living in Toronto, you know how important it is to have access to high quality child care. As part of our early education career training, George Brown operates 12 innovative child care centres in a variety of facilities across Toronto.

Staffed by fully trained early childhood educators, the child care centres play an important role as lab schools, helping students develop their skills, and as crucial sources of high quality daycare for you and your child.
