Accessing School Caisse accounts

On the School Caisse website, your child can view their balance, recent transactions, banking information and online statements. To use the "Log in" feature on the website, you will have to contact the caisse taking part in the program or call 1-800-CAISSES to receive a temporary username and password.

The child can then access their account on www.caissescolaire.com/en/enfants by clicking "Log in."

Note that you cannot make transactions in the child's account by logging in on the School Caisse website.

The School Caisse program is for elementary school students. When they move on to high school, you can contact their caisse or credit union to move their School Caisse account to a Youth Profit Account, which will be suited to their new banking needs.

If you haven't received a paper statement, you will have to contact the person in charge of the program at the caisse. For caisse contact information: https://www.caissescolaire.com/en/parents/ma-caisse-scolaire

Statements can now be viewed online. To log in to the account on the School Caisse website, the parent will have to contact the caisse, or call 1-800-CAISSES. The child must be present, since it is their account.

The child can then access their account on www.caissescolaire.com/en/enfants by clicking "Log in."

School Caisse accounts only allow deposits. If you need to make a withdrawal, the child must go to the caisse with a parent or guardian to finalize a few additional details. Withdrawals must be made at the counter with a teller.

We don't recommend issuing access cards to anyone under age 12. But your caisse or credit unions can look into offering it to a parent or legal guardian as needed. Note that this would be under exceptional circumstances.
