*Remember ONLY Eligible for Families with Kindergarten Aged Children:  Fee reduction funding is intended to support children under the age of 6 (0-5 year old children), with some exceptions for children with birthdays early in the calendar year who are 6 years of age but are still enrolled in kindergarten.

More specifically, base fees must be reduced for eligible children, which are defined under O. Reg. 137/15 as:  Any child, until the last day of the month in which the child turns 6 years old (irrespective of the type of licensed child care program in which they are enrolled); and Up until June 30 in a calendar year, any child who, o turns six years old between January 1 and June 30 in that calendar year; and o is enrolled in a licensed infant, toddler, preschool, or kindergarten group, a licensed family age group, or home child care.  For clarity, all eligible children receiving home child care at a premises overseen by an agency are eligible for the fee reduction (both agency-placed and privately-placed)

For Children aged 6 (6 year olds born between July 1-Dec 21) to 7 years of age, the rate of the Kindergarten program will be $40.00.

 The Board of Directors review parent fees  on an annual basis when the non-profit, operating budget is approved by the City of Ottawa’s Children’s Services and its Contribution Agreement.  Parents receive a minimum of thirty days notice of any increase in fees.

Since 2014, part-time Fees are payable at the end of each month and receipts are issued at year-end for income tax purposes. Unfortunately, there are no rebates or reduction for unused days of care for any reason including statutory holidays, family holidays or absence due to illness. There is also no fee reduction for siblings.

Vanier Co-operative’s revised license has NOW  opened its addition of 26 childcare NEW spaces for children 48-months to 7 years.  The NEW Special Program room is opened ONLY during the summer months to help prepare young children for their transitions to the school board system and to help refine existing skills for children already attending Kindergarten.  Please contact the Administration Office at your convenience for more detailed information
