Child Care and Education

Child Care

In Prince Edward Island (PEI), parents of young children have several quality options for child care including early learning and child care centres, day care centres, and babysitters to name a few.


Education for eligible children from kindergarten through Grade 12 (approximately ages 5 to 17) is publicly funded. Children in PEI study in safe and fun surroundings with access to playground equipment and sports fields in most schools. All public schools in PEI teach the same curriculum; however, parents can choose to enroll children in English, French, or English with French immersion, which has a blend of English and French classes. Often, children in the same neighborhood will attend the same school. The school your child attends is often determined by where you live.
