In its 2012-2017 Strategic Plan, the Ministère de la Famille introduced and supported the implementation of a single window access to childcare services called La Place 0-5 to simplify the process for parents who are seeking childcare services.
Since November 2015, La Place 0-5 has made it possible for parents to register their children with any of the Quebec childcare centres and subsidized daycare centres.
La Place 0-5 provides parents with transparent information and increased access to childcare services and admission priorities of childcare providers, which allows them to make sound decisions based on their specific needs.
La Place 0-5 helps parents find childcare spaces by providing them with an information and registration service. Parents can register their child for the childcare provider of their choice, and can also consult and track their file. These services are offered to parents at no charge.
For parents: One-stop access to all recognized childcare services
- Effective June 18, 2018, parents will be able to view a map of all recognized childcare centres, daycare centres and home childcare providers in Quebec.
- From June 18 to September 1, 2018, recognized home childcare providers and non-subsidized childcare centres that have not already registered will gradually be added to the single window access service.
- Effective September 1, 2018, all childcare centres, subsidized daycare centres, non-subsidized daycare centres and home childcare providers will be registered with the Single Window Access to Childcare Services, and will fill their spaces exclusively with registrations from parents who have used this service.
La Place 0-5 will be the only access point for parents to register their children with a recognized childcare provider in Quebec.
