Looking for Home Child Care
The Agency offers a quality service that is equitable, affordable and accessible to all residents of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell. The supervised home child care must adhere to the standards and regulations of the Day Nurseries Act. We offer child care for children from 6 weeks to 10 years of age inclusively. We also offer home child care for children before and after school.
It is called home child care because the children are cared for, in the provider’s home. Home child care offers children a structured and stimulating environment, as well as various activities that will allow them to develop physical, social, intellectual and emotional skills. The Agency assures that all homes in our program are selected through a rigorous screening process. Visits are made on a regular basis to ensure that the government’s standards are met.
Each care provider must follow provincial directives regarding health and security policies, as well as the number and age of children permitted in their home day care.
