When there is increased demand for before and after child care in an area without any before and after school programs, Trillium Lakelands District School Board will conduct a viability survey in order to determine demand and viability. If there appears to be enough demand to support a new before and after child care program, the Board will contact existing child care providers in the area and they will conduct a second viability study. If, after the second viability study, there is enough demand to successfully run a program, the child care provider will then go through the license and permit process in order to put a program in place.
