Scheduled and unscheduled visits are made on a regular basis to ensure that the government’s standards are met.Each Child Care Provider must follow provincial directives regarding health and security policies, as well as the number and age of children permitted in their Home Child Care.

We can summarize the advantages for parents choosing a Licensed Home Child Care Agency as follows:

  • the Agency's qualified staff members are responsible for recruiting as well as for the constant evaluation of the Child Care Provider's home;
  • accessibility and flexibility of a Home Child Care;
  • nutritional meals and snacks;
  • stimuling activities adapted to the children's ages, needs, and interests;

Child Care Fee Subsidy

Read More +

As a parent or guardian, you may be eligible for a Child Care Fee Subsidy if you have one or more children aged from birth to 12 years old who attend or are about to attend a licensed Child Care Centre.

What does it take to qualify for a Child Care Fee Subsidy?

- Reside in the region of Prescott and Russell;
- Your children must attend a licensed Child Care Centre in Prescott and Russell or the Prescott and Russell Licensed Home Child Care Agency;
- Have a full- or part-time job, be looking for a job, be going to school full- or part-time, or have a child with special needs;
- Be experiencing financial needs identified by your most recent Notice of Assessment, according to governmental deadlines.

How do I submit an application?

To apply for a Child Care Fee Subsidy, you are invited to register an Application for Child Care Fee Subsidy (Central waiting list) and by filling out an application once your registration is complete. If you need further instructions please follow these steps.

Once your application is submitted, you will automatically be added to the waiting list for a Child Care Fee Subsidy, and someone will contact you when a space becomes available. We will then send you a list of documents to provide in order to determine your eligibility and proceed with the financial assessment. Once the documents have been received, we will contact you to schedule an appointment.

How is financial eligibility determined?

To be eligible for a Child Care Fee Subsidy, you absolutely must have filed an income tax return for the most recent tax year *.

To determine your financial eligibility for a Child Care Fee Subsidy, we will ask you to provide line 236 from your most recent Notice of Assessment and to subtract the amount of your RC62 – Universal Child Care Benefit or your family net income found on your Canada child tax benefit.

A parental contribution will be determined based upon your income from the previous year. You are eligible for a Child Care Fee Subsidy if the amount of your parental contribution does not exceed the total amount of your Child Care expenses per month.

*If you have recently immigrated to Canada, you can still apply, but you will need to provide your Notice of Assessment as soon as you file your first income tax return.

If your financial situation has changed considerably since the previous tax year, you may qualify for a fee reduction in your parental contribution. To take advantage of this reduction, you must provide verification that your income for this calendar year will be at least 20 per cent less that the most recent tax year.

You may use the Childcare Subsidy Calculator to give you an estimate of the parental contribution you will have to pay. Important: This calculator is for reference purposes only. The exact parental contribution amount will be determined at your application or annual reapplication appointment. 

Line 236 minus RC62
