Finding reliable and quality day care for your children is a major challenge faced by parents attending college. It is necessary to have both a regular babysitter or daycare centre for your pre-schooler and a backup plan for days when the regular services may be unavailable. It may be necessary to have morning, noon or after school care for your school-aged child, and a backup plan for in-service days. To get the best available care for your children, we recommend making arrangements early.
For complete information on child care subsidies or to find licensed child care anywhere in Manitoba, visit the Government of Manitoba’s Child Care Online website. You may also want to register for the Online Child Care Registry, which manages wait lists for licensed child care across the province. More information about the province's Child Care Subsidy can be found on their website.
In Brandon, you'll find a list of child care centres on the Economic Development website. Many people also use the Child Care classified ads on eBrandon.ca. ACC also has a daycare centre on campus in Brandon and in Dauphin.
