The Early Childhood Parent Portal is your one-stop shop for all childcare information in New Brunswick. You can create an account and find day cares and accredited educational institutions in your region. Detailed information on grant programs and provincial inspection reports are also available on the portal.
The province is also actively working to reduce fees for children in childcare facilities by 50% while increasing the number of day care spots available, with 3,400 new spaces in designated early learning and childcare facilities on track for completion by 2026. In addition, this partnership agreement with the Government of Canada will support an average of $10‑a‑day child care in the province, significantly reducing the price of child care for families. That means you’ll be able to find an affordable spot without a hassle.
The Designated Centre – Parent Subsidy program provides financial support to low and middle income families and is based on a sliding scale (between $37,501 and $80,000) which considers childcare fees, the number of children under the age of five not attending school and the total annual gross household income.
Families with a total annual gross income of $37,500 or less will have access to free early learning and child care services at a designated New Brunswick Early Learning Centre. Those with multiple preschool children under the age of five will not pay more than 20% of their gross household annual income on childcare.
Children ages 0-5 who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder are eligible for Autism Intervention Services (AIS). Financial assistance is available and allows children to benefit from a maximum of 20 hours of AIS through an approved autism agency.
The Day Care Assistance Program is designed to help your family have access to financially affordable, quality early learning and child care at an approved daycare.
If your family’s annual net income is $55,000 or less, you may qualify.
