As a parent or guardian, you might qualify for a fee subsidy, a financial grant from the government to help you pay for licensed child care.
You are responsible for finding a subsidized child care space for your child within the United Counties of Prescott and Russell.
Subsidized child care is available at:
- Licensed Child Care Centres
- Prescott and Russell Licensed Home Child Care Agency
The Prescott and Russell Child Care Services manage the centralized waiting list for subsidized spaces. The subsidies are intended firstly for students, sole support parents and working parents.
The first step is to register with the licensed child care service of your choice.
Your name will be referred to a Case Manager and placed on a waiting list until a place becomes available for your child. A Case Manager will then give you a list of documents that you will need to provide us and an appointment will be scheduled to evaluate your financial situation and determine your eligibility for a subsidy.
If you need more information on subsidized spaces and/or if you wish to add your child’s name to the centralized waiting list, contact a case worker at 613-675-4642 / 1 800 667-9825, extension 6301.
