This is a fee-based program. The fee will be set by the provider. Depending on your household income, you may be eligible to receive subsidy to reduce the cost. For more information on Child Care Subsidy and to see if you are eligible, visit novascotia.ca/ChildCareSubsidy

What are the program’s hours of operation?

The provider will determine the program hours, but they based on family need. Typically, programs start at 7am and end between 5 and 6 pm.
