Subsidy is available for low to middle income families (a family has to be making more than $70,000 before they do not qualify for subsidy). Subsidy means that parents do not pay full fee for their space; how much subsidy they receive depends on their income. Visit https://www.ednet.ns.ca/earlyyears/families/application.shtmlto find out more.
