What is an halte-garderie (respite daycare)?
It is a daycare offered by a community organization which provides services to families with young children.
They can be located in different community settings such as French language schools, literacy organizations, family and women's centers, community, recreation and education facilities, newcomer service centers, etc.
The majority of the children attend haltes-garderies on an occasional, temporary or part-time basis, depending on the rules of each organization and the needs of families. Some halte-garderies also offer full-day services.
