If you live in Kingston or Frontenac County and you’re looking for childcare services, you need to register with the Kingston Centralized Childcare Registry. The registry gives parents/caregivers the opportunity to get listed on as many agency waiting lists as you want. The childcare agencies will contact you when a space becomes available, so you don't need to call each agency to be added to their waiting list.
Military families who want to register their child with Les Petits Amis Childcare Centre (LPA), also need to register with the Kingston Centralized Childcare Registry. Military families are LPA's first priority. Please indicate 'Military family' in the comment section on the application.
We suggest you register with the Kingston Centralized Childcare Registry as soon as possible.
After your registration is complete, you need to keep your account active to receive updates. If your account is not active for a month, it will be deactivated and you’ll need to reapply. To keep your account active, you need to login at least once a month.
