Best Start Program

Best Start provides an integrated system of services that seamlessly support families with children from their birth right through their transition into school These services include quality child care, public health and parenting programs, as well as newborn and infant screening programs, hearing programs and speech and language therapy programs to help identify supports for children who need extra attention for healthy early development.

Best Start is a partnership with parents and families, created in response to the clear message that Ontario's young children and their families need more integrated, accessible and high quality services, regulated child care spaces, and more subsidies so that more families can access those spaces.
