If you temporarily withdrew your child from child care, you can choose to return to care at any time, if your there is an open space.
Temporary Emergency Funding for child care facilities that prioritize spaces for essential service workers will end on Aug. 31.
If you temporarily withdrew from child care, and our facility is currently at capacity with ESW’s, you will regain your space on Sept. 1 or when we return to pre-pandemic enrollment.
When you return to care, we can charge you the regular parent fee.
If you choose to delay your return, we can still charge you to hold the spot.
Temporary Emergency Funding for child care facilities will be discontinued on August 31.
Child care facilities will no longer be able to prioritize children of ESW’s beginning on Sept. 1.
The province continues to work towards universal child care, and are working hard to create more affordable, accessible and quality child care.
If you need child care, we encourage you to use the CCRR matching form or to contact your local CCRR directly.
