The Alberta Family and Social Services Day Care Subsidy is available to parents who need assistance to help cover the fees for child care. Forms for the subsidy are available at . Once a subsidy has been granted families will receive a Subsidy Approval Letter, a copy of which should be emailed to, as soon as it is received. TOPP KIDS does NOT get this information sent to us by the government and relies on families to provide this information before the first billing date to ensure fees are debited accordingly.

All families with subsidies must provide postdated cheques or PAD approval for the difference between the currently approved subsidy allowance and the cost of their fee for each month registered. Any remaining fees will be charged on the 15th of the following month after subsidy amounts are forwarded back to the program. Parents are responsible for paying any remaining fees by the 3rd Friday of that month. The Deposit Policy still applies.

It is the parent’s responsibility to track and ensure their child reaches the minimum number of hours per month needed for a full subsidy payment as every family may be different.
