The Québec government recognizes three types of subsidized daycare services, available to parents at a cost of $7 per child per day.
They are: childcare centres, day care centres, and home childcare providers.
Parents can choose from various types of daycares provided for children aged 0 to 4 (under 5 on September 30). School daycare services are also provided in schools for children aged 12 and under. All daycare centres recognized by the government provide an educational program matched to the age of the children.
A childcare centre permit may be issued only to a non-profit legal person or a cooperative.
A day care centre permit may be issued to a natural or legal person running a for-profit business, or to a non-profit organization. The holder of a day care centre permit must provide day care in a single facility.
Home childcare is a paid service provided by an individual in a private residence. For the childcare to be subsidized, the person must be recognized as a home childcare provider by a coordinating office.
