Missed child care days due to COVID-19

Funding is available if your child is absent or if your child care program has been asked to close.

If you have a child enrolled in a licensed child care program (including licensed home child care) in Peel who misses child care due to COVID-19 related reasons, you can receive a credit or refund for the missed days.

This funding is provided by the Government of Ontario and Government of Canada.

Child absenteeism coverage

Your child care provider will credit or refund your child care fees for eligible absent days, within 45 days of the eligible absence, from April 1 to December 31, 2021. You’re eligible to receive a credit or refund if you pay child care fees and your child misses child care because they:

  1. Did not pass active screening questions asked by the child care provider, parent or guardian.
  2. Were directed by Peel Public Health to close the home, centre, or classroom due to a positive, confirmed COVID-19 case.
  3. Were directed by a doctor, health care provider or Peel Public Health to self-isolate due to a confirmed, positive COVID-19 case.

If your child misses care because they were directed to stay home by a doctor, health care provider or Peel Public Health, your provider will credit or refund you for the missed days and these days will not count towards the number of days set by your provider’s child absenteeism policy.

Speak to your child care provider for more information about the specifics of its child absenteeism policy, including the number of absent days supported.

Your child care provider's regular policy will apply to all absences that are not related to COVID-19.

Other information

The service providers listed received funding from the Region of Peel to support a Child Absenteeism Policy from April 1 to December 31, 2021.

If you have any questions or concerns, talk with your service provider. If you’re unable to come to a resolution, contact the Region of Peel.
