Family Child Care Homes

Programs that provide supervised care for children in licensed private family homes during some portion of a 24-hour day. The number of children is restricted according to provincial regulations and is also sensitive to the age ranges of the children (e.g., a private home may be able to look after five preschool children but not five infants). Family day care homes above a certain size may also be required to employ a qualified aide and meet safety regulations such as fire inspections.



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.
