86. A subsidized childcare provider may not request or receive, directly or indirectly,
(1) any contribution from a parent who has been exempted from paying it; or
(2) any extra contribution or fees other than those determined under sections 82 and 92 for the services that are prescribed by regulation or provided for in a subsidy agreement.
Nor may a subsidized childcare provider request or receive, directly or indirectly, any administration, registration or management fees with respect to subsidized services, or any fees for putting a person on a waiting list to obtain a subsidized childcare space.
Moreover, a subsidized childcare provider may not make a child’s admission subject to the payment by the parent of a higher contribution than that set by regulation or of any amount in addition to the set contribution. Nor may a subsidized childcare provider refuse to admit a child because the parent refuses to pay such a contribution or amount.
Except to the extent provided by regulation, a subsidized childcare provider may not tolerate or permit a situation in which a child who occupies a subsidized childcare space is given additional goods or services for which any form of service or contribution is to be required directly or indirectly from the parent.
