Advantages of Becoming a Provider

Starting your own home child care business can be both exciting and overwhelming but with the support of Etobicoke Home Child Care Agency (EHCCA) we will help make this process more comfortable for you!

While being self-employed, there are a number of benefits of becoming a Provider in a licensed home child care service including:

  • You will be a part of a program that is licensed by the Ministry of Education with a purchase of service agreement with the City of Toronto servicing in Wards 1, 2 and 4.

  • You will receive continuous support from our qualified Home Child Care Consultants. They will assist you in providing the best quality child care curriculum that is play-based and respects diversity.

  • You can provide child care for up to 6 children in your home from ages 0 to 12 years old complying with the required age ratios.

  • You will have regular opportunities to participate in professional development workshops, networking opportunities and training in areas such as nutrition, first-aid, health and safety as well as programming.

  • You will have access to a year-round Toy and Equipment lending program and to necessary forms/documentation that meet the required Child Care Early Years Act, 2014 and Home Child Care Assessment for Quality Improvement (AQI) health and safety standards.

  • Work with a licensed child care agency that highly values the partnership between Providers, children/families, Staff and the community.
