Childminder/Carer Supervising Toddler During An Art And Craft Session

Finding the right child care centre is a big and often stressful decision. You have to consider many things such as location, convenience, quality, and of course cost. Child care in Toronto is expensive, making it hard for many families to afford.

Did you know that there is a way to receive help with the cost of child care?

Your family may be eligible for a Child Care Fee Subsidy from City of Toronto. It only takes 1 minute to use the fee calculator to find out if you may qualify.

And you can use the City’s child care locator to help you choose from over 1,000 centres in Toronto—as well as the new child care spaces that continue to open across neighbourhoods.

Apply as early as possible as centres and fee subsidies often have wait lists.

There are a wide range of licensed child care options in Toronto. For a complete list of programs and quality ratings, visit or call 311.
