The one-stop access service for childcare spaces, called
La Place 0-5, began on June 2, 2014. This new tool make the search easier for parents who wish to obtain a reduced-contribution space for their child.
A project with several advantages
Since November 2015,
La Place 0-5 is the only point of access for parents to register children for all Québec childcare centres (CPE) and subsidized daycare centres.1
La Place 0-5 helps parents find a childcare space by offering them an information and registration service. The parents register their child on the childcare services waiting list of their choice. They consult and track their file electronically and, as needed, by phone.
La Place 0-5 ensures rigorous management of its registration list . Parents who register on the list see their file treated transparently and in accordance with the laws and regulations in force. Parents are invited to update their file regularly.
Finally, these services offered to parents are free.
Key milestones of implementation of one-stop access:
- June 2, 2014: La Coopérative Enfance Famille goes live with the one-stop access service for reduced-contribution spaces in Québec educational childcare, known as "La Place 0-5".
- December 2014: The regional access services have all ended their activities.
- February 2015: The integration of the data from the regional access services has ended and Québec parents (except those of the Nord-du-Québec region) have access to the services of La Place 0-5 and can register there.
- January to November 2015: La Place 0-5 gradually proceeds to integrate all Québec childcare centres (CPE) and subsidized daycare centres.
- November 2015: The adherence process has ended in the 17 regions of Québec; all childcare centres (CPE) and subsidized daycare centres have joined La Place 0-5.
During the next development phases, schedule from 2016 on, La Place 0-5 should be able to receive parents' registrations with regulated home childcare providers and non-subsidized daycare centres.
All childcare centres (CPE) and subsidized daycare centres are obliged to join the one-stop access service, except for Aboriginal childcare services under a delegation agreement in the exercise of certain powers regarding childcare.
