    Licensed Home Child Care offers a range of child care options including full-time, part-time, shift, weekend and emergency care. This licensed child care option provides a small group setting within the Provider’s home for up to six children from infancy to twelve years of age.
    Provider homes are visited regularly by Early Childhood Educators to ensure that the highest standards of health, safety, nutrition, and child development are met. Licensed 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.
    Parents can choose from many ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Altogether, the Providers speak more than 20 different languages. The agency can help parents find the licensed home child care that is right for them.
