Payment of the reduced contribution gives entitlement to the following:
- educational childcare services for a maximum of ten continuous hours per day;
- snacks if your child is kept at snack time;
- lunch or supper if your child is kept at mealtime and, in other cases, breakfast;
- all the material used by the childcare service.
A childcare service does not have the right to ask the parent for a contribution greater than the rate corresponding to the reduced contribution in force for the following:
- an activity it organizes;
- an article it provides;
- any service it offers during its hours of childcare.
However, situations exist for which fees may be charged:
- an organized outing within the framework of an educational activity for which the childcare service incurs expenses;
- a specific hygiene item provided to your child, the costs of which are assumed by the childcare service;
- a meal other than the one to which the reduced contribution entitles you.
If you refuse for your child to participate in an outing or use an item or a service, the childcare service nonetheless must provide your child with the educational childcare services to which he or she is entitled.
Your child is entitled to 261 days of childcare per year. All combinations of days and half-days are possible. However, you may not benefit from more than twenty days of childcare per four-week period, unless you prove that you need it:
- due to seasonal work;
- or because your work or education schedule justifies it.
You will enter into a
written agreement with the childcare service, which will cover the following points:
- educational childcare services;
- projected days of attendance;
- hours of childcare services;
- the way the services are offered:
- per day (between 4 and 10 continuous hours of childcare per day)
- or per half-day (between 2 hours and 30 minutes and 4 hours of childcare).
