Child Care Fees

The City of Windsor, as the Consolidated Municipal Service Manager for the delivery of child care services for Windsor and Essex County, is sharing with the community that the provincial government has issued an emergency order that immediately prevents any child care operator from charging fees where care is not being provided. The order also means that parents cannot lose their child care space for not paying fees during this period. This will help provide much needed relief for parents during the COVID-19 outbreak.  If fees have been paid in advance, child care providers should reimburse the parents for any fees paid since April 9, 2020.

Updated information on provincial announcements regarding Child Care and Early Years Services can be found on the Government of Ontario website.
