For Child Care expenses, if my daughter turned 16 in February 2018, do I claim the entire amount for 2018 for just the amount until she turned 16?

As long as your child was 16 at some point during the year, you can claim the child care expenses for the entire year.  Please see the following link for more information, https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/cra-arc/formspubs/pbg/t778/t778-18e.pdf.
