Peace of mind for working parents is what this bilingual program initiated in 1987 is all about. We provide reliable, accessible back up care for children 3 months to 12 years when the child is mildly ill, when regular child care arrangements are interrupted, or when other family emergencies arise. Employers/organizations/unions pay an annual access fee that entitles their employees/members access to the Short Term Child Care Program. Parents who use the services are charged a reasonable user fee, which may be subsidized partially or fully by their employer/union.
Short Term Child Care also provides respite child care programs at Women's Shelters.
Additionally we provide reliable, convenient short term child care for special events to assist parents and event coordinators.
Furthermore, Short Term Child Care provides supports, in both English and French, to licensed child care services that are in need of supply educators and also to potential candidates interested in supplying in child care centres and nursery schools in Ottawa.

Short Term Child Care (STCC) offers quality options to best meet your temporary child care needs:
We offer flexible child care arrangements to meet the varied working schedules of working parents – days, evenings, overnight and weekends. We offer working parents with an alternative to missing days or even weeks of work due to a lack of temporary child care.
In addition to supporting working parents, trained caregivers also provide weekly early learning and child care sessions at six Women’s Shelters in the City of Ottawa.
We also have a solution to supply educator recruitment, training and deployment for licensed child care programs (click here to learn more)
