Wait List Policy

With the introduction of the new Child Care Funding Formula and Framework, some CMSMs and DSSABs are developing child care fee subsidy wait list policies for the first time, while others are in the process of reviewing their current policy.

To support service managers in the implementation of the Child Care Funding Formula and Framework, the OMSSA Early Learning and Child Care Capacity Building Project developed an inventory of wait list practices currently employed across the province. This review is intended to support CMSMs and DSSABs as they revise or develop their local child care fee subsidy wait list policies.
