Child Care

Canada First Is The Preferred Payment Partner for Child Care and Day Care Centres

Choose Canada First because you can substantially reduce your credit card processing fees – to as low as 1.18 % for your child care and day care centres.

The business of day care has undergone a seismic shift in the past few decades. Historically, child care centres were often run out of private homes where caregivers took care of a few children at a time.

However, recently, more “one stop” child care businesses have been established. In other words, here children move up from birth to pre-kindergarten in the same building. Which ever day care model you choose,  parents  pay up to hundreds of dollars a week to cover the cost of child care.

The cost of child care was typically paid for by cash or cheque. However, with the need for increased social distancing and demand for contactless payment, credit card machines have found their way into child care businesses.

Unfortunately, like many day care centres, you may be overpaying for your credit card processing. For instance, a facility charging $250 a week for care, and paying 2.75% to a processor, is paying $27.50 per month to collect the monthly fee for one child. Therefore trimming this expense results in more money for necessities like staff, supplies, and profits.

In conclusion, choose Canada First and you will substantially reduce your credit card processing fees – to as low as 1.18 % for child care and day care centres.
