Welcome to the City of Kingston and County of Frontenac
Centralized Childcare Registry and Information Service

The Centralized Child Care Registry and Information Service (CCRIS) is where you can learn about the child care services available in our community and apply for a child care space.

CCRIS is easy to use and the information you provide will help you determine the childcare options available to you. You may place your child’s name on as many lists as you choose. The Child Care Agency will contact you when a space becomes available. Where you are placed on any wait list will be determined by the date you submit your on-line application.

Getting Started
