Child care

Child Care

If you have children, arranging child care that you are comfortable with is critical to your success. Saskatchewan Polytechnic counsellors can help you determine what type of childcare you might want to use and give you some ideas about how to find appropriate care.

A provincial government resource called the Early Learning and Childcare Program can help you determine your child care needs, provide you with information about child care subsidies and help you find a suitable child care provider.

Daycare services are available for students and employees at Saskatchewan Polytechnic in Regina, Saskatchewan Polytechnic in Prince Albert and Saskatchewan Polytechnic Kelsey Campus, Avenue W Centre (Saskatoon). Parents may be eligible to receive a child care subsidy dependent on family income.
