Licensed Home Child Care

Our Commitment to the Families in Our Care

The children are invited to many different play opportunities throughout the day, all of which are designed to encourage independent thought, extend learning and encompass all domains of childhood-physical, social, emotional, cognitive and communication. The children are viewed as capable and competent, encouraged to try new experiences and offered responsive relationships with their caregiver, who provides a solid foundation for learning through a sense of belonging, well being, engagement and expression (the key foundations for learning from How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years.)

Weekend and shift work hours are available with some caregivers.

Parents are an integral part of the learning process and we encourage strong, respectful and reciprocal relationships with ongoing conversations about what you want for your children. Through these conversations, we can support your child’s learning and development.

What can parents expect quality programming to look like for children with a licensed home childcare provider?

  • Flexibility in daily routines and building on children’s natural curiosity.
  • A caregiver who is thoughtful and reflective of the home environment and neighbourhood as rich in possibilities for children to learn through exploration, play, and inquiry.
  • Children of varied ages developing strong relationships, learning together and caring about each other.
  • Caregiver connects with community resources eg. libraries, parks and family support centres (playgroup)
  • A responsive caregiver who reflects with home childcare visitors to develop expectations for goals and the program, as well as participating in professional development and learning opportunities.
  • Children and their families build strong, positive and secure relationships with the caregiver, which helps the program evolve and mature along with the children.
