Home Child Care

Home Child Care has been offered since 1986 by Caring For Kids, as a licensed program. Today , children aged three months to 13 years are cared for by dedicated Home Child Care Providers in nurturing, inclusive, supportive and stimulating environments. Home Child Care Consultants visit providers homes regularly as a partner to provide support, consultation and educational opportunities. Providers, Parents and Consultants work together to ensure that the highest standards of health, safety, nutrition and child development are met. Our home child care program is licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education (http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/) which sets provincial standards for quality and safety. We make every effort to accommodate the individual needs of each family and their children. This child care option provides a small group setting within the provider's home for up to 6 children. Providers care for infants, toddlers, preschool aged children and offer care for school aged children before and after school hours, and on days when schools are closed.

The Ministry of Education inspects the agency and the home child care locations at least once a year to ensure:

  • Provincial standards and regulations are being met.
  • Issue and renew licenses.
  • Investigate complaints.
  • Monitor operators who are having difficulty meeting licensing standards.

*Child care fee subsidy is available through the Region of Peel for those families who qualify.

Homes are open from 7:00 am - 6:00 PM (if you need extended hours speak to your child care consultant).
