Today’s Family’s goal is to provide quality, trusted care to families. Our Licensed Home Child Care program provides flexible – offering full-time, part-time, shift, weekend and emergency care to families across the regions of Hamilton, Halton, and Haldimand-Norfolk.
What is Licensed Home Child Care?
Licensed Home Child Care provides a comfortable, home setting for children to learn and grow and for you to have a fulfilling and meaningful career. With smaller group sizes of up to 6 children, you can provide the kind of one-on-one care and an individualized approach to learning that every parent wants for their child.
The Provider’s homes are visited regularly by Early Childhood Educators to ensure that the highest standards of health, safety, nutrition and child development are met. Each resident in the home must participate in the screening process.
Providers are trained through our on-site workshops and operate under the professional guidance and supervision of a Today’s Family Licensed Child Care Visitor.
Home Child Care offers a flexible and very personal level of child care. Among the many advantages of this type of care are the small child to Provider ratios, the informal group settings and easy access to the service within, or very near, the child’s neighbourhood.
Becoming a Provider
We’ll introduce you to a Home Visitor with a background in Early Childhood Education, who will help you make the most of your new career with professional support, resources and guidance. They visit regularly to help you ensure that health, safety, nutrition and child development standards are met.
As a Provider, you will use your skills in child care, learn new things and feel good about making an impact in children’s lives. We will give you opportunities to foster and build your skills with children. You will feel fulfilled as you watch children grow and succeed. If you are a parent yourself, you will never miss a moment of your child’s developmental milestones.
Being a Provider of Licensed Home Child Care is a big change, and we’d love to help you take the first steps! Please contact us for more information.
