Chatham-Kent Child Care Waitlist
One application. One list.
Welcome to the Municipality of Chatham-Kent Child Care Waitlist Site

By creating an account, you will have access to apply for any licensed childcare service within Chatham-Kent, including Before and After school programs within schools.

Getting Started

To complete your application, you must first create an account.

Once your account has been activated, you will need to provide information about you and your family on the application form. The information you provide will be used to suggest child care options. You may place your child’s name on as many lists as you choose. The child care provider will contact you when a space becomes available.

Licensed Home Child Care

Licensed Home Child Care providers are represented in this application by one central child care agency listed below. As there are many licensed home-based child care programs in the region, the application does not list individual programs. If you are interested in licensed home child care, we recommend that you use the manual selection feature to add yourself to the waitlist for the agency.
