Children's Services

We provide financial help to pay for licensed child care for eligible families. We also offer support programs and services for parents and caregivers with young children and/or children with special needs.


Apply for a Child Care Subsidy

Check if you're eligible and learn how to apply for financial help if you can't afford the cost of child care.

Find Support, Programs, and Services

Sign up for free programs that support you if you are a new parent, have a child with special needs, and teach you how to support your children as they learn to read.

Reduced Child Care Fees

At this time, families with children from 0 to 4 years old attending licensed child care centres in Peel continue to receive a reduced fee.

Licensed Child Care, Know your Rights

No one should be refused access to child care because of special needs or fee subsidy. Learn about access and what you can do if you feel you have been turned away unfairly.
