If you did not find the child care facility you were looking for on the Map it may be because the facility:

  • does not receive the Child Care Operating Funding through MCFD. Check health authority inspection websites for more licensed child care facilities;   
  • may not  be required to be licensed (only 1 or 2 children receiving care - i.e. Registered Licence-Not-Required with the CCRR) ;
  • may be operating as an exempted program: see Child Care Licensing Regulation Section 3 (i.e school age summer/day camp, Strong Start ), or,
  • may be operating in contravention of the Community Care and Assisted Living Act because they are operating without a licence, when one is required. These services are not regulated or monitored and may pose a risk to the health and safety of children. Click here to search.

If you have a complaint or concern about a facility: Make a Complaint. 

Child care providers need to update their information regularly using the Child Care Web Application. For more information about this step, contact the Child Care Operating Funding Program at 1 888 338-6622 (toll free) or 250 356-6501 (Victoria).
