As parents prepare to make alternative care arrangements for children who might be out of school due to a potential strike by Ontario’s CUPE education workers on Monday, a number of camps and daycare services are being set up just in case.

The province’s 55,000 custodians, early childhood educators, educational assistants and administrative staff will be on the picket lines Monday morning if a resolution isn’t found between CUPE and the provincial government by the end of the weekend.

Now, tens of thousands of parents are being forced to find alternative childcare options for their kids.

Here are some places offering ‘pop-up’ strike camps across the province:
