The average cost of preschool child care in Windsor is the lowest in Ontario, according to a new study released by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA). 

But the city is only in the middle of the pack when compared to cities across the country.

Parents of preschoolers pay on average $781 per month — 11th highest in Canada. The cost for a toddler is $879 per month, which is 10th highest and $989 for infants under 18 months old, which is ninth highest.

Rates for Toronto and Vancouver are among the highest. An infant fee in Toronto is $1,758 per month. 

But cities in Quebec have the lowest fees across all age categories: $168 a month in Montreal and $183 per month in Gatineau, Laval, Longueil and Quebec City.
