Welcome to the City of Peterborough Child Care Waitlist Site

COVID-19 Update
Licensed centre based and home child care can remain open for the duration of the shutdown. At this time most licensed child care centres will be open and providing regular full day services for children aged 0 – 3.8 years.   Families are encouraged to contact their current licensed child care provider to confirm access to care.
To support the families of school-aged children, the City of Peterborough will be implementing a targeted emergency child care plan for school-aged children, at no cost to eligible families.
Emergency child care services for children of JKSK & School age (3.8 years -12 years) will be available for essential service workers in the City and County of Peterborough. In order to be eligible, families must have no other option for child care and be working outside of their home. Essential service workers will be required to submit proof of employment at time of registration (e.g. work badge, paystub). Final approvals will be completed by City of Peterborough staff.
Choose Emergency child care as a program time in your application to see all Emergency child care centres in OneHSN.
Getting Started

To complete your application, you must first create an account. 

Once your account has been activated, you will need to provide information about you and your family on the application form. The information you provide will be used to suggest child care options. You may place your child’s name on as many lists as you choose. The child care provider will contact you when a space becomes available.

For more information on how to complete your child care application, view the attached video.

The Child Care and Early Years Act set specific rules, regulations and standards that child care agencies must follow to get and keep a licence. Licensed child care providers should have programs that include both active and quiet play, crafts, pretend play, outdoor play and many other kinds of learning. Licensed Child Care can be provided through:

  • A Child Care Centre

  • Home Child Care agencies

Licensed Home Child Care providers are represented in this application by one of two central child care agencies; Compass and Wee Watch. As there are many home-based child care programs in the city, the application does not list individual programs. If you are interested in home child care, we recommend that you use the manual selection feature to add yourself to the waitlist for the agency.
