In New Brunswick, there are two types of childcare services, licenced, which are services registered with the provincial government, and unlicensed, which are services not registered with the provincial government, these are often home daycares.
Children under five years old can go to daycare for the entire day. Once children are school-age, they can go to afterschool programs. Afterschool programs often pick up your children directly from school.
Some daycares and afterschool programs are better than others. They are also different prices. It is important to ask a lot of questions before choosing care for your children.
