Child Care Accessibility Expanded as of May 4 for Working Parents

Released on April 30, 2020

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that anyone working now or returning to work under Phase I and Phase II of the Re-Open Saskatchewan plan will have access to licensed child care services located within Saskatchewan schools.

Following the closure of school-based child care facilities last month, more than 2,100 of those spaces continue to operate as part of a reserved supply for pandemic response workers, and there is now capacity within that supply to expand accessibility to other workers.

“As we move to gradually re-open Saskatchewan, we know that parents, caregivers and families returning to work will need child care support, and we are helping them by ensuring their children are safe and well cared for,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “I want to recognize and extend my sincere appreciation to child care centres and staff who have continued to operate to provide this important service.”

The centres will continue to operate within the guidelines provided by the Saskatchewan's Chief Medical Health Officer, Dr. Saqib Shahab, which include a maximum of eight children per room along with increased sanitization measures.

In addition to the 47 school-based centres operating as a part of the reserved supply, approximately 350 non-school-based child care centres and homes continue to operate.  Parents can access the application form for in-school child care centres on the Government of Saskatchewan website at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-childcare
