Supporting families with child care costs during COVID-19

Funding is available for families enrolled in licensed child care programs in Peel.

Licensed child care programs are lifting some COVID-19 policies based on public health direction from the Ontario government.

Families must self-assess their child before attending licensed child care using the school and child care screening.

Funding is available so licensed child care providers can continue supporting families with children enrolled in licensed child care programs after April 1, 2022.

If you have a child enrolled in a Peel licensed child care program (including licensed home child care) who misses days due to COVID-19 related reasons, financial help may be available.

If your child is absent due to COVID-19

Talk to your child care provider to find out if they will continue to offer financial support for child care days missed for reasons related to COVID-19 between April 1, and December 31, 2022. Your child care provider's regular policy will apply to all days missed that are not related to COVID-19.

Providers who offer financial support for days missed related to COVID-19 between April 1 and December 31, 2022 must refund or credit you within 45 days of the day missed.
