Waiting Lists
Waiting lists for group child care centres may be long. Another option is to consider child care that is offered in the care provider’s own home. This is called family child care. Licensed Family Child Care providers can care for up to 7 children, including their own. Registered Licensed-Not-Required providers can care for 2 children in addition to their own.
