Flexible Childcare Pilot Program


JANUARY 15th – MAY 15th 2020

Actors who are parents face unique challenges because they are frequently in need of childcare for last minute or shorter than “minimum” windows of care provided by traditional childcare facilities and caregivers.

From January 15th – May 15th 2020 ACTRA Toronto will be testing out a flexible childcare pilot program for members. The pilot will offer members discounted services provided by The Summerhill Club.


  • $20/hour last minute care (that’s a $5/hour discount for ACTRA Toronto members!)
  • 1 hour minimum
  • Childcare provider will meet parent at a mutually agreed upon location (parents home, childcare providers home, audition location etc)
  • Childcare providers are CPR Level C certified (infant through adult), police checked, screened and trained.


The program will be assessed at the end of the pilot on May 15th to determine if the services will continue. This can’t work without involvement from members. Please help us get this valuable initiative underway. Sign up today and help spread the word!
