Childcare & schools


Quebec Daycare is subsidized by the government and fees are $7/day, however space in these facilities is extremely limited and applicants are typically on a long waitlist.

If you are not eligible or are having difficulty securing a place for your child, there are private daycares throughout the city.

Affiliated with McGill’s Chaplaincy Services, the McGill Student Parents Network, along side student volunteers, offer respite for students who are parents by organizing communal activities, monthly meetings and family gatherings.
