Child Care Lookup

Parents can find information about licensed child care programs and family day home agencies with the Child Care Lookup tool. This tool provides information about the location, ages of children served, number of children that can be served in the program, the program’s status and recent inspection results.

The Lookup tool is not available for private child care arrangements, and parents interested in programs offered through the Ministry of Education (such as pre-kindergarten or junior kindergarten), should contact their local school board or ECS operator for more information about available programming and how to register or enroll.

If you are looking for child care, you can search for a program near you by entering your city and/or postal code, age group and program type. For a list of program types and age groups please see below for definitions.

If you already know the name of the program, enter the name and city of the program. If you are looking for a program and only know part of its name, you can enter at least 3 characters in the program name bar as part of your search.

Enter in as much or as little information as you have and submit your search. Every program for the criteria you have entered will be listed and will include the facility name, full address with postal code, phone number, capacity, accreditation status and previous inspections.

See the disclaimer and a glossary of terms used within this tool.
