Licensed Home Child Care Program

Who We Are

Home Child Care (HCC) has been offered by Andrew Fleck Children’s Services, as a licensed program, since 1969. Today, approximately 500 children aged three months to twelve years are cared for by dedicated Home Child Care Providers in nurturing, inclusive, supportive and stimulating home environments.

Home Child Care Consultants visit provider homes regularly as a partner to provide support, consultation, and educational opportunities. Providers, Parents and Consultants work together to ensure that the highest standards of health, safety, nutrition and child development are met.

Our Home Child Care program is licensed by the Ministry of Education which sets provincial standards for quality and safety. We make every effort to accommodate the individual needs of each family and their children.
