Depending on family income, parents or guardians may be eligible for a child care subsidy from the Ministry of Children and Family Development. It is the parent's or guardian's responsibility to apply for the subsidy and obtain a subsidy authorization number before their child starts. To apply, call 1-888-338-6622 or click on the above link. The K.I.D.S. daycare supervisor can assist in filling out the forms which can be downloaded from our resources page. The parents or guardians are responsible for any fees that child care subsidy does not cover. If the subsidy has not been approved before their child starts, the parent or guardian must pay fees in advance to Kaien Island Daycare Services. If subsidy is approved afterwards, Kaien Island Daycare Services will reimburse the fees to the parent or guardian that is covered by subsidy.
