Reduced child care fees

The program that provided a reduced fee for families attending licensed child care centres in Peel has now ended.

This reduced fee was only available through licensed child care centres that have an agreement with the Region of Peel.

Speak with your child care provider if you have questions about how your fees will be changing.

You may be eligible to receive financial assistance to help pay for child care. Learn how to apply for a child care subsidy.

Families with children attending licensed home child care

In 2020, the reduced child care fee for licensed home child care is $6 a day for full-day and part-day care. This is offered through the Region of Peel’s Fee Reduction Operating Grant.

As of February 2020, all licensed home child care agencies that have an agreement with the Region will be required to update their market rate schedule to reflect the reduced fee of $6 a day for children enrolled in full-day and part-day care.

Other information

The Government of Ontario’s Childcare Tax Credit allows eligible families to claim up to 75% of your eligible child care expenses. This includes services provided by child care centres, homes and camps.

You will be able to claim this tax credit when you file your 2019 personal income tax return in 2020.
