  • What is a child care subsidy?

    Advanced Care & Education Daycare believes that we have an obligation for the welfare of our young children and that our quality of service to children and their parents is in our highest interest.

    Child care subsidy is the amount of money that the Ontario government grants to families to assist them with paying for child care. The subsidy is paid directly to the child care services and transferred to the families as a fee reduction. 

    Your subsidy fee is based on your most recent Tax Return that you have received from the Canadian Revenue Agency (the CRA).

    Who qualifies for subsidized daycare in Ontario?

    To apply for the subsidized daycare in Ontario, you must be currently employed, job searching, enrolled in school or an approved training program.

    The Child Care Fee Subsidy reduces the fees of child care services for families that have children under the age of 13. Additionally, if your child is enrolled in any of the following child care services, you may be eligible for subsidized child care in Ontario:

    • A licensed child care program,
    • A children’s recreational after-school program,
    • Day camp or overnight camp,
    • A before- and after-school program that is directly operated by the school board.
  • How much does a daycare subsidy cover?

    Ontario, and in particular the York Region in which ACE Daycare belongs, is dedicated to alleviating the financial burdens that are associated with professional daycares.

    While there are numerous ways in which you can take advantage of the Child Care Fee Subsidy, there are two priority areas that take precedence. They include:

    • Families who have children that are exposed to health risks,
    • Families who have lower-end income.

    • If you are pregnant, you can apply for subsidized daycare funding for your future child
    • In case you being let go from your job, you will be able to use three months worth of subsidized child care funding
    • If you are currently on maternity leave, your subsidy funding will end four weeks after you have given birth to your child.
    • If you have recently moved to Canada, you do not have to file your application enclosed with your Tax Return.
  • Do both parents need to be working or studying to be eligible for the child care subsidy?

    Yes, both parents should be able to provide proof that they are either enrolled in an educational institution or working full-time. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t qualify for full funding, you can apply for partial funding to assist you in your financial matters.
