Alberta Childcare Subsidy
As a licensed agency our eligible families are able to apply for the government subsidy program to help with the cost of our childcare.
What is Child Care Subsidy?
Childcare subsidy is a program that assists eligible families with childcare costs for their pre-school and school age children attending regulated child care programs such as family day home programs overseen by a licensed agency.
Subsidy is an income based support program and you may qualify for full or partial subsidy based on your circumstance, including if you: are looking for work, are attending school, or your child have a special need.
How to Apply
You can apply online and will need to have the following:
- Your valid Alberta ID
- Access to line 15000 from your most recent notice of assessment (gross income)
- Your social insurance number
When we signed up with our first child, there was a lot of new paperwork to figure out and the agency was a great help. [CRFDH] guided us through and even helped us to apply for subsidy (which was a bit confusing so I am so glad we had their help with it)
