Family Child Care is a wonderful option for so many reasons. This was the option we chose for our children when I had to return to work. I wanted my children to be in a home environment. I wanted to find someone who was going to care for, nurture and love my sons and I liked the idea of it being on a much smaller scale than a centre.
When I went on the search for the perfect dayhome there were some qualities that I was definitely looking for. The person who was running the home child care program had to have some experience working with children, they had to have completed some training or education in early childhood education and they had to have children already placed in the home. The caregiver/provider had to have completed a police clearance and have references available.
