Child Care and Family

Child Care

Child care, preschool and playschool programs are available for children who are too young to go to school. You choose whether or not you want to send your children to them. In Saskatchewan, like the rest of the country, children may stay with relatives or friends or attend child care programming (commonly called day care) when their parents work.

Saskatchewan has both licensed and unlicensed child care.
