JUNIOR PROGRAMS SAVINGS OPPORTUNITIES
We are excited to be able to have Tanbridge Junior Programs included in the Canada-wide Early Learning and Childcare Program ($10-a-day program). In September 2023 our Junior Programs will be included in this program and parents will have access to the affordability grant and subsidy supports.
AFFORDABILITY GRANT (for children up to 5 years old)
New Affordability Grant ($10-a-day Daycare by 2026) is available to families registered in the Junior Academy and Junior Kindergarten Programs.
Subsidy is also available to parents who qualify.
WHAT IS AFFORDABILITY GRANT
Alberta and Canada’s governments have signed an agreement to reduce childcare fees in half for parents with kids zero to kindergarten age starting early 2022 and reach an average of $10 a day childcare by 2025-26.
Beginning January 2022, the Government of Alberta began issuing an affordability grant to ALL families of children not yet in Grade 1 or higher, regardless of income. You do not have to apply for this grant, Tanbridge Junior Programs submits for it each month based on your child’s attendance. This grant is provided to families registered for 50 or more hours per month.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR PARENTS
Starting in September 2023, parents in the Junior Programs can expect to see a reduction in fees to reflect the affordability grant amounts.
*There is a minimum requirement of attendance in a program for 50 hrs per month*
SUBSIDY FOR CHILDREN IN THE JUNIOR PROGRAMS:
On top of the grant, parents of children in one of the Junior Program, that make less than $180,000 per year can apply for an additional subsidy. If you have a dual parent household, both parents need to be working or schooling to be considered.
Please note that subsidy is based on actual hours used and the full amount they show is based on 100 hours of attendance. If coming less, it could be pro-rated.
