How do I get help to pay for daycare?
Families living in Peel region who need help with the cost of licensed child care for their children can apply for a Child Care Fee Subsidy if they meet eligibility requirements and have a valid reason for care. For more information contact the child care fee subsidy at the Region of Peel at: peelregion.ca/hsapply or call 905-793-9200
How do I enrol?
Once a family comes up on the waiting list they will be notified so that a tour/visit can be set up for the child and the parents or caregivers. It is extremely important that the centre be informed of the individual needs of each child prior to enrolment. This will ensure the appropriate placement for the child.
Once a space becomes available and has been offered to a family, there are a number of steps that need to take place. The family is asked to submit a completed registration package and the registration and first month’s fee to hold their space, unless they have been approved for child care subsidy. The enrolment forms must be completed in full and returned before the child starts in the program. The forms are designed to include all of the information required by the Ministry of Education and the Public Health Department. It provides the teachers with a good introduction to your child.
Can I visit before my child’s start date?
Once a space is confirmed, all families are strongly encouraged to come with their child for two visits prior to the actual start date. This allows the child to get comfortable with the Centre and the staff while mom or dad is here with them. This can be done by calling the centre to let us know when you would like to come in.
