Rates

Strawberry Patch Children’s Centre Rates for 2021/2022 Season (Effective September 1, 2021)

We have opted into the Governments Fee Reduction Initiative (CCFRI).  The rates below DO NOT  reflect the reduction.  The discount is noted beside the rate.  This reduction will apply as long as we continue to “Opt In” to their program and they are providing.

Families are encouraged to apply for the Affordable Childcare Benefit provided by the Government.  This will help reduce your cost to us.  We will provide the “Childcare arrangement form” needed to accompany your application.  Please be sure to ask us for this form when applying.
