Nova Scotia Lic. Child Care Finder

Life can be chaotic and parenting can be a challenge. Making an informed decision about the best child care for your child or children shouldn't be difficult. Using your computer or smartphone's location, the Nova Scotia Licensed Child Care Finder combines provincial government data with an online map to help you find the best child care nearest to you at work, at home, at school or somewhere in between. You can filter results for specific type of child care such as half days or after school as well as filter based on the age of your child or children. The search results contain a link to provincial inspection data specific to each child care provider to assist you in making an informed choice.
