Family daycare at the caregiver's home

A family daycare caregiver is a city employee who provides care for children in their own home. The maximum group size is four children. The group can also include a pre-primary education aged or a school-aged child in the afternoon.

The care provider and the guardians agree on the care hours separately for each child based on the guardians' work, studies or other needs. Family daycare caregivers generally work for 8-9 hours a day, for an average of 40 hours a week.
In the caregiver's absence, we will provide substitute care for the child at a daycare centre, group family daycare centre or in the group of another family daycare caregiver.

A daycare centre director or family daycare supervisor supervises family daycare caregivers.

Local family daycare instructors supervise family daycare caregivers. Ask your local family daycare instructor for more information on family daycare and care locations.
