There are different types of childcare services, some of which are governed by the Educational Childcare Act and its regulations, namely, childcare centres, private day care centres and home childcare services.

These three types of services can offer reduced-contribution spaces or not, but all of them, if they provide childcare to more than six children, must have a permit issued by the ministère de la Famille or be recognized by a home childcare coordinating office.
