Dates of existence



The York University Co-Operative Daycare Centre was established at Winters College in 1969. During its inaugural year the Centre served eighteen children. In 1970 it licensed and in the same year it relocated to the Graduate Residence. Soon after it relocated again to its current home in the Atkinson Residence. By 1976, the roster had reached its maximum compliment of 115 children of students, staff and faculty. The project is co-operative and requires parents to participate as staff and as managers. The Centre is largely funded by child care fees charged to parents as well as by subsidies from Metro Toronto, and the University.
