Lambton County is giving families that use licensed childcare a timely financial break.
The fees that licensed providers charge will be covered for the month of December on a one-time basis to help alleviate pressure on families, the county’s homelessness prevention and children’s services department said.
“Supporting the licensed child care sector and assisting families is vitally important for economic recovery, particularly at this time as many families continue to face increased pressures and financial burdens resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic,” it said in a release.
The county will use provincial funds to pay the fees for the month directly to providers
No action is required by the families.
