Childcare FAQs

Where am I on the waitlist?

  • We are unable to provide information with regards to place on waitlists. Generally, we operate on a ‘first come-first served’ basis.

How long can I expect to wait for an offer of childcare space?

  • Generally, most spaces become available between July and September when children leave our programs. It is very difficult to predict when a space will become available.
  • This information is general and should not be treated as an actual guide to when you should expect to receive an offer. We are unable to guarantee that a space will become available and do encourage families to continue their search for childcare and not rely solely on their application’s preferred start date for when care will be provided.
  • North Shore Community Services (NSCR) can provide information about Childcare in the community.    604-985-7138
