14. CHILD CARE SEARCH
Please note, the information provided on the Child Care section of the Website is included for information purposes only and to assist with the connection between parents and guardians and child care providers. Selecting the child care provider from Parent Central does not guarantee you a reserved space from the child care provider selected, rather it informs you of available spaces and initiates the conversation with the provider to discuss options and confirm availability. Child care providers will still follow their own application and acceptance processes that must be followed to gain access to a child care space.
While 211 Saskatchewan endeavors to provide the most updated and accurate information in regards to available spaces, we rely on child care providers to update their availability of spaces on a regular basis. In addition, given that the availability of spaces can change rapidly, some omissions and inaccuracies are inevitable. 211 Saskatchewan encourages child care providers to use the Website and to notify the Resource Specialist team of any service changes throughout the year. However, child care providers may choose not to participate or provide specific details to 211 Saskatchewan, which may then result in missing information.
15. CHILD CARE PROVIDER
Please note, the information provided on the Child Care section of the Website is included for information purposes only and to assist with the connection between Parents and Guardians and Child Care Providers. Parents and Guardians who have selected to add you as a Child Care Provider to their wait list are advised that a reserved space is not guaranteed and Child Care Providers will still follow their own application and acceptance processes.
211 Saskatchewan endeavors to provide the most updated and accurate information to Parents and Guardians in regards to available spaces. Therefore, we rely on Child Care Providers to update their availability of spaces on a regular basis. 211 Saskatchewan encourages Child Care Providers to use the Website and to notify the Resource Specialist team of any service changes throughout the year.
Please note, if a Child Care Provider chooses not to participate in providing updated information for their listing, the listing will look incomplete in comparison to other Child Care Providers.
