Why Licensed Home Child Care?
Licensed Home Child Care offers comfortable, individualized care for families and children. With groups limited to a maximum of 6 children, Home Child Care Providers can better focus and provide quality programming to the children in their care.
In Licensed Home Child Care, providers can offer specialized programming that may not be possible at our Early Learning and Child Care Centres. For example, many families choose Licensed Home Child Care because these programs offer flexible hours of care, including nights and weekends.
Why should I become a Licensed Home Child Care Provider?
There are many reasons why people choose to become Licensed Home Child Care providers. Some are passionate about child care and Early Childhood Education, while others see a need amongst their friends, neighbours, or community. Many Licensed Home Child Care Providers are parents as well, and see Licensed Home Child Care as an opportunity to work while still being present for their child’s developmental milestones.
How does Today’s Family help new Licensed Home Child Care Providers?
Today’s Family helps all aspiring Licensed Home Child Care Providers through the licensing process, ensuring that their homes are safe and ready for hosting a child care program. 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.
