Child Care Subsidy

Nova Scotia’s Child Care Subsidy Program helps eligible families pay for childcare at licensed child care facilities or family home day cares regulated by a family home day care agency.

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development provides subsidies to the child care facility or family home day care agency on your behalf. The subsidy is attached to your child.

If you decide to change child care centres or family home day cares, the subsidy goes with you.

Eligibility

Subsidies are available if your child is 12 years or under and applying for child care at a licensed facility or family home day care that offers full-day care. Eligibility is based on your family’s income, finances and social need. You must be eligible in all areas to qualify.

Eligibility for child care subsidy will be reviewed annually or more often if determined by your caseworker . If you are receiving a subsidy, you are required to notify your caseworker of any changes in your financial circumstances within seven days of the change. If you fail to notify your caseworker, you may lose your subsidy and/or have to repay the subsidy you've already received.

How to Apply

You can apply for Child Care Subsidy using one of the following methods:

  1. contact a Child Care Subsidy Caseworker at one of the office locations listed below.
  2. download and print an application form (see Forms, below) and mail it to the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

Applications are reviewed by a Child Care Subsidy Caseworker. You'll have to provide proof of your income (i.e. CRA Income Tax Notice of Assessment and/or a current pay stub) with your application. In some cases, an interview may be scheduled with a Caseworker.

It is your responsibility to find a child care centre or family home day care for your child. You will need to let your Child Care Subsidy Caseworker know when your child will be starting and the program’s daily fees.

If approved for Subsidy, your Caseworker will let you know how much the Department will contribute towards your child care costs. Your child care centre or family home day care agency will bill the department directly. Be sure to keep copies of all forms related to your application.
