Testimonials
Thank you for taking such good care ...
Thank you for all of your great care that you provided for our daughter Tori before and after school hours, during some holiday time and teacher professional days. Tori enjoyed coming to your daycare and enjoyed being with the other children. It was a great help to me to have Tori taken to school and picked up from school and especially knowing that she was safe.Thank you also for helping Tori with some homework involving reading and arithmetic. I really enjoyed the special cards and artwork that Tori brought home for me. I also appreciated that you made her birthday special. Thank you again for taking such good care of our daughter.

An amazing Caregiver ...

I cannot imagine Sabine being left in the care of anyone else for the last two years. Words cannot express how much thanks and praise I have for you in helping us raise Sabine to become the bright and happy girl she has become. I know you think of her as being a part of your family and we are so very, very fortunate for that. You are an amazing caregiver and I value all of the wisdom you have shared with me. I know Sabine will cherish the time she has spent with you for the rest of her life and will remember  “Nanu” always.

Renee & Andrew

Child Care Options PDF E-mail
Child care in Canada in general and British Columbia in particular falls under two general categories: licence required and licence-not-required child-care.  Each comes with specific levels of intervention or regulation from the province.

The Options are:

Licensed child-care programs are required to meet guidelines under the Child Care Licensing Regulations and must comply with regulations regarding staff qualifications, staff-to-child ratios, criminal record checks, program activities, space and equipment, and various nutrition, discipline and emergency procedures. These types of child-care services are offered by parent-run or community non-profit societies, social service agencies, churches, private individuals or companies. Options in this category include:

  • Group child-care centres: These centres serve children from birth to 36 months, also known as infant/toddler care, or children from 30 months to school entry age. Centres typically operate from about 7 or 8 a.m. to 5:30 to 6 p.m., year round. Specific regulations limit the size of a group: over 30 months, a centre is limited to 25 children.

Under 36 months, a centre can have no more than 12 children. Staff to child ratios are also regulated: for over 30 months, centres must have one early childhood educator and two assistants for 25 children, while under 36 months requires one infant/toddler educator, one early childhood educator and one assistant for 12 children. In other words, ratios are one to eight for over age three and one to four for infant/toddler.

Staff must have their first aid certificate.

These centres may also include kinder-care: care for before and after kindergarten, which is a half-day program for kindergarten students in B.C.

  • Preschools: Part-day programs of a maximum of four hours for children aged 30 months up to school entry age. Most preschools operate during the school year, from September to June. Regulations stipulate that the maximum group size is 20 children, with a staff-to-child ratio of one early childhood educator and one assistant per 20 children. Staff must have a first aid certificate.
  • Licensed family child care: This variety of family child care is operated out of a caregiver's own home and can provide care for children from birth to age 12. Most provide full-day care, but operators set their own hours. Some also provide before-and-after kindergarten care. Licensed child-care programs are required to meet guidelines under the Child Care Licensing Regulations and must comply with regulations regarding staff qualifications, staff-to-child ratios, criminal record checks, program activities, space and equipment, and various nutrition, discipline and emergency procedures. Canadian Lilies Day Care falls under this category. The maximum group size is seven children. No more than five of the seven children may be preschool age (under five) and, of the preschool children, no more than three may be under three years old. Of the children under three, no more than one can be under 12 months old. The care provider must have a first aid certificate.
  • Out-of-school care centres serve school-age children who require care outside normal school hours, such as after school and on school holidays. Most offer summer programs. For kindergarten and Grade 1 students, groups can be no larger than 20, with a ratio of one staff to 10 children; Grade 2 and higher can have 25 students in a group, with one staff to 15 children. Staff must have first aid certificates.

 The Ministry of Children and Families also identifies several other categories of licensed child care, including emergency child-care centres child-minding centres, and occasional child care at a ski hill or resort. Each has its own specific regulations. Another designation is supported child care, which refers to the extra support required for children with special needs in a variety of settings.

Unlicensed options

Licence-not-required options include child-care by a caregiver and in-own-home care.

  • Licence-not-required child-care regulations stipulate that a caregiver can provide care for the parent's own children and one or two children not related to the caregiver. Operators may or may not have had formal child-care training and are allowed to set their own hours of operation, fee schedules and operating policies.

Parents using this type of child care are responsible for monitoring the quality of child care provided.

Providers have been encouraged in the past to register with their local Child Care Resource and Referral program (most of these programs are expected to be closing this year). Registration requires a criminal record check for everyone over the age of 12 in the home, a home-setting review, a physician's report, first aid training and participation in child-care training courses.
