Child Care Options/Daycare

Child care opportunities promote individual growth and for early years child care it fosters the ability to transition into our classrooms. As a parent/guardian, you can choose from an array of professional child care programs at a licensed child care centre or a home-based child care provider.

Before and after school care viability

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.
