Preference for University Children

The Early Learning Centre (ELC) is a department of the University of Toronto. The preference of the ELC is to enroll children of University students, staff and faculty, endeavoring to maintain a minimum of 50% of their total enrollment children of University students, and 50% children of University faculty/staff as averaged over the calendar year.

A University child is defined to mean the birth child, adopted child or stepchild of a parent who is, or was at the time of enrollment, a student, member of the staff, or faculty of the University of Toronto or its federated colleges. A student is a person enrolled part-time or full-time in an undergraduate or graduate program of the University, and a member of the faculty or staff is any person who has an employment relationship with the University, full-time or part-time but not a casual employment relationship. This policy is entirely consistent with the University of Toronto Policy on Child Care Programs.
