Childcare

All Residents from the City of Kingston and Frontenac County seeking childcare services are required to register with the Kingston Centralized Childcare Registry. The registry allows parents and/or caregivers to place their name on the waitlist of multiple agencies; and, parents are no longer required to contact each agency in order to be added to their wait list. The childcare agency will contact you when a space becomes available.

Military families that choose 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. 

Once registration has been completed, your account must be active in order keep your position on the wait list. If accounts are inactive for one month, the account will be deactivated. Please ensure that you log in monthly to keep your account active, or you will have to reapply.


There are community resources available to support families with the cost of licensed childcare. For more information on childcare subsidies, please visit the City of Kingston Community Services.
