Applying for Child Care Subsidy

If you cannot pay the full fee and need help to pay for your child care costs, you can apply for a child care subsidy with the City of Windsor.

After registering and applying for a licensed child care program, you will have the option to apply for a subsidy.
To be assessed for subsidy, you must submit the documentation that is requested. You will be given a list of items to submit to our office during the subsidy application process.
Once you are finished your subsidy application, you will receive a confirmation number and email stating that your application is either complete or incomplete.

After your application is completed and submitted successfully, you will still need to provide your required documents prior to being contacted by the City of Windsor staff to discuss next steps in the process.
