What is Licensed Home Child Care?

Licensed Home Child Care is child care in a home setting that meets legislated standards set out by the Province of Ontario. We work together with parents and child care providers to ensure the best possible care for the children. Early Childhood Educators from Children’s Resources on Wheels (CROW) offer training for Providers, introduce families to Providers, ensure legislated standards and CROW Policies are followed and provide support for both Parents and Providers. Licensed Home Child Care is available for children between 6 weeks and 13 years of age requiring care in Lanark County.
