Subject: Rates Policy  & Rate Guide Policy No. F.5.2.

 

POLICY

The Manitoulin-Sudbury DSB has developed a standard set of child care rates, based on hours of care and age groups, provided for subsidized children. Fee subsidy will be issued to an approved non-profit child care centre in accordance with the DSB universal rates. Non-profit, DSB approved, child care centres must follow the standard / universal rates set by the DSB. If an approved child care centre has higher or lower rates, they are required to show that their rates are moving towards the universal rates within a timeframe agreed to by the DSB. Child care centres must charge the same universal rates to subsidized parents and full fee paying parents.
