A daycare centre is a legal person (non-profit organization, cooperative or business corporation), a natural person or an Aboriginal band council providing educational childcare services in a facility. A daycare centre has the obligation to form a parent advisory committee to deal with all aspects concerning the care of the children admitted to the daycare centre. A school board or a municipality may not be issued a daycare permit.
Issuance of daycare permits is not systematically associated with the granting of spaces for which the services are subsidized.
Getting involved on a daycare centre advisory committee
You can get involved on the advisory committee of the daycare centre your child attends to give your opinion, particularly on:
- the application of the educational program;
- the acquisition and use of educational material and equipment;
- layout and furniture;
- the services provided;
- handling complaints.
