Funding for licensed child care includes the management of both Fee Subsidy and Integration Services for children and families residing in Renfrew County. Fee Subsidy is available to families who qualify to help offset the costs of childcare for children up to 12 years of age. Integration Services supports the integration and inclusion of children into a licensed child care setting when required. In addition they also provide pedagogical support, and professional development for early learning practitioners and programs.

The County of Renfrew is also the municipal service manager for the EarlyON Child and Family Centres which are free drop-in programs for caregivers and children from birth to 6 years old. Our centres are welcoming places for all families, and offers a range of services that includes:

  • Engaging parents and caregivers,
  • Supporting early learning and development, and
  • Making connections for families

In an effort to ensure we are “Helping to make Renfrew County the best place to raise a child”, the County of Renfrew Child Care and Early Years Division is committed to the principles and practices behind quality licensed child care and EarlyON Child and Family Centres.
