In 2017, Toronto Public Health surveyed 2,502 parents with children 0 – 6 years old who live in Toronto. We wanted to find out what kind of parenting information you wanted to learn about and how best you liked to receive the information. Thank you to many of our readers that completed the survey!

Parents said they were most interested in learning about:

  1. Healthy child growth and development
  2. Building a positive relationship with their child
  3. Community resources
  4. Speech and language development

Parents said their preferred way to receive information were:

  1. One time workshop or presentation
  2. Groups
  3. On-line program
  4. Internet/websites

Parents are looking for services that are: convenient, flexible, needs focused, brief and specific.

Thanks to all the parents who participated in the survey. The results of the survey will help us plan Early Years services.
