Other Childcare Options
There are many other daycare facilities in St. John's. Typically, a daycare centre can charge between $30-$60 per day, depending on your child's age and type of care required. Most daycares do not care for children under the age of 2 so check age requirements. It is recommended that you research several daycare centres to compare fees.
You can search for other daycares in the Yellow Pages of the phone book under Childcare services. You can search for Pre-schools under Schools-Academic-Nursery & Kindergarten.
Licensed childcare service providers must meet certain standards for staff training, facilities and programs. For more information about the provincial standards and helpful tips on how to find childcare, visit the Provincial Government of NL website on childcare services.
