Notes: 1. Nursery schools (part-time) are not regulated in Quebec, Saskatchewan and the Yukon, and so are not included in these figures.
2.Quebec’s figures include school-age spaces which are under the aegis of the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport.

The proportion of children under 6 who have access to a regulated, full- or part-time centre-based child care space varied by province and territory in 2014.
In Prince Edward Island, almost one-third of children under 6 had access to such a space.
That was the case for 13% of children in Saskatchewan and 19% in Newfoundland & Labrador.
