Emergency child care available for eligible essential workers

Emergency child care is being made available for the school-aged children of eligible essential workers in our area.

The measure is in place while schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Stratford, Perth County and St.Marys, the spaces are being allocated in chronological order from application date and will only be available to those who are listed by Ontario as workers eligible for emergency child care.

Eligible families will also be required to have exhausted all other possibilities for child care.
