Our Licensed Home Child Care provides full time, part time, evenings, weekends, shift work, and overnight care for children birth to 13 years old.
Home Child Care Providers have a variety of education and experience. The Child Care and Early Years Act requires that the Agency support Home Child Care Providers in relation to continuous professional learning.
Oxford Community Child Care offers two Provider learning days each year – one in the Spring and one in the Fall. At these sessions, Providers receive updated information, resources, review of policies, and learning opportunities for topics of interest. Topics are chosen based on Provider feedback, Home Child Care Coordinator observation, and current issues.
All Providers receive a copy of "How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years" and created their own Program Statements.
Home Child Care Coordinators and Providers are certified in Standard First Aid & CPR Level C and have completed Criminal Reference Checks.
