District of Sault Ste. Marie Child Care Registry

Welcome to the Sault Ste. Marie Central Child Care Application Site

Here you can learn about the child care services available in our community and apply for child care space. The application form is easy to use and the information you provide will determine the child care options available to you. You may place your child’s name on as many lists as you choose. The child care centre will contact you when a space becomes available. Your place on any waitlist will be determined by the date you submit your online application.


School age children (4 -12 years) whose parents are considered essential workers can apply for Emergency Child Care (ECC).  Once eligibility is determined, you will be waitlisted and contacted when a space is available for your child. 
There will be three operators offering emergency child care.  You will be contacted and provided with the option to take the next available space regardless of location.  You can turn down the space and continue to wait if it is not your preferred site. 
  1. Review the Provincial Essential Workers list to determine if you are eligible. 
  2. If you have an existing account, please update your information by adding the “Emergency School Age Child Care” site as one of your choices.  While updating your account, please ensure that employment information has been included.
