$10 a Day Child Care
As of April 2nd, 2023, some daycare fees are reduced to $10/day. Although this is terrific and celebrated news for many families, most media announcements around the $10/day daycare have not shared that school-age children who attend less than three (3) periods per day (before school, lunch, and after school) are not included in the $10 a day plan. This means that school-age children who attend for two (2) periods (before and after school) remain at $20.80 for all in-service days and school holidays.
Gillis Play and Learn school-age program is a 2-period program and, unfortunately, does not currently benefit from a reduction of fees with the $10/day daycare initiative. We will continue to provide accurate information, ensure parents, caregivers, and community members have ALL information related to $10/day daycare, and share any changes when they occur. We apologize if this surprises some families who were left with the impression that their fees would be reduced for their children.
