Lanark County Childcare Subsidy Waitlist


Current Fee Subsidy Clients

If you currently have an active fee subsidy file you will continue to receive the fee subsidy support you have been approved for once your child(ren) return to the child care.

If you are opting to not send your child(ren) back to care as soon as your child care reopens, please contact your fee subsidy case worker to request a Break in Service. A break in service will allow you to maintain your access to fee subsidy without having to go on the waitlist. This break in service will last for the time period the Province dictates the child care must hold your space without payment if you are not accessing the service.

New applications for child care fee subsidy currently has a waitlist.

There are 2 different kinds of waitlists when it comes to child care.

  1. The waitlist Child Care Centre’s have for the spaces available at their Centre’s. You can contact individual child cares to see if they have space for your child(ren).
  2. Lanark County’s fee subsidy waitlist for families that need financial support to pay for child care. At this time Lanark County has a waitlist for new fee subsidy applications.
