SNAP is a single access point for children up to 12 years of age who are currently attending or seeking to enrol in a licensed childcare program in Waterloo Region.

SNAP accepts referrals from childcare programs, parents and community agencies.  To make a referral, visit the referral tab on this website. A SNAP Coordinator will review your referral and connect you with the most appropriate services to support your child’s participation in a child care program.
