“Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are older, they will not depart from it.” The trouble is many families in Canada cannot afford childcare or have to wait years on wait-lists. Similarly, many Jewish families cannot access formal Jewish educational institutions for a variety of reasons. Governments and community funders have made important investments in the past few years but a lot of work remains to be done. If you are currently in need of childcare, think you will be in the near future, or are just curious about how to create more Jewish educational opportunities, this workshop is for you! Childcare co-ops are some of the oldest co-ops in Ontario and offer parents the opportunity to come together in community to meet their personal and collective needs, shape an education that resonates with their values, and create more childcare spaces for others.
In this workshop, we will review the basic legal, organizational, and financial steps to start a distinctly Jewish childcare co-op. We will review how to determine whether it is right for you, and some of the unique advantages and challenges involved in providing childcare in this way.
