Enrolment & Wait Lists

CELC values opportunities to engage with families, share our work and have children live in our environments to ensure this is the right fit for you and your child. Waiting lists for families requesting child care is maintained by each municipality or program when child care spaces are not available. We encourage families to sign up to their regional Child Care Waitlist Registry (in Peterborough City/County or City of Kawartha Lakes or Haliburton,) or to contact the program they wish for their child to attend (Durham, or Northumberland regions). Scroll down to find the program nearest to you.

When a space becomes available, the first family on the list who meets the criteria is contacted by email and telephone.  Please see the CELC-child care waitlist protocol.
