 As today, the provincial Child Care Subsidy Program income threshold is being adjusted for the first time since 2007.

It increases from $27,500 to $32,000. While more families will be eligible for a full child care subsidy, other families will see a reduction in their parental contribution and some families previously ineligible will now receive a partial subsidy.

The subsidies are for licensed child care centres or family child care home.

Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Dale Kirby made the announcement today during a tour of New Fun Land child care centre in Torbay.
