Childcare Costs

Childcare costs are provided by the Ministère de la Famille for a 10-hour childcare for all children eligible to the reduced contribution. These costs are currently $ 8.25 per day with an annual rate range based on family income.

The parent must first complete the required documents and provide all necessary documentation for the approval of the reduced contribution request.

Exemption from the usual cost is possible for children whose parents are receiving last resort assistance.

Parents are required to respect the closing schedule of the center. Parents who are late must sign the form provided for this purpose. Parents that are late will then have to pay the additional costs for this delay as provided for in the service agreement.
