Day care assistance program

Finding affordable, quality child care for your children is often a difficult task for most parents, and many families struggle each month to pay for child care. Social Development can help. Changes to our day care assistance program have increased the number of New Brunswick families eligible for financial assistance.

What is the day care assistance program?

The day care assistance program is designed to help your family access financially affordable, quality child care at a licensed child day care facility. Parents who do not have access to a licensed day care facility may be eligible for assistance under the alternative child care program.

Am I eligible?

There are certain conditions that will be considered when reviewing your application. If you are working, attending school, or undergoing medical treatment, you may be eligible for funding.
