District of Sault Ste. Marie Child Care Registry

Welcome to the Sault Ste. Marie Central Child Care Application Site

Here you can learn about the child care services available in our community and apply for child care space. The application form is easy to use and the information you provide will determine the child care options available to you. You may place your child’s name on as many lists as you choose. The child care centre will contact you when a space becomes available. Your place on any waitlist will be determined by the date you submit your online application.


School age children (4 -12 years) whose parents are considered essential workers can apply directly to the Emergency Child Care (ECC) provider of their choice.   Once eligibility is determined, you will be contacted when a space is available for your child. 

Currently, in the District of SSM, the following programs are offering emergency care for school age children:   

·  YMCA Childcare

·  St. Paul Extended Day Program

Please note that space is limited and a waitlist for care may be established.


1. Review the Provincial Essential Workers list to determine if you are eligible. 

2. If you have an existing account, please update your program time and care requirements.  If you do not currently have an account please create one now.

3. Under the “Program Time” drop down menu, choose:  Emergency Child Care
