All licensed child care agencies use the Child Care Registry to manage their waitlists and fill their spaces, so be sure to set up a profile. The only programs that don’t use the registry are before and after school programs at Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l’Ontario(CSPGNO) schools. For CSPGNO programs, please call the school directly.
For some age groups, especially infants, there are long waiting lists. Start considering child care options as early as possible, even during pregnancy.
