Canada-Wide Early Learning & Child Care Agreement (CWELCC)
A National Childcare Plan for Canada – A Historic Day for Families
- The Canada-Wide Early Learning & Child Care (CWELCC) Agreement has been signed which will see child care fees reduced to an average of $10-a-day by September 2025.
Please continue to pay your child care fees as usual. At this time, we are waiting for more information and direction; we will share updates once we receive them. Please stay tuned for more information!
Good Beginnings is pleased to share a memo from the County of Oxford regarding the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care Agreement (CWELCC). Participation in this program is optional for Child Care providers; however, we want to assure our families that Good Beginnings will be participating. A reminder that this federal program applies to specific age groups as outlined in the memo.
As also mentioned in the memo, it will be later this year when we will receive funding. Please know, that as soon as funding is available, we will provide the adjustment of 25% reduction on fees retroactive to April 1, 2022, for those families who qualify.
