Becoming a Home Child Care Provider Two children playing outside at child care

Home Child Care Providers working with the County of Wellington's licensed home child care agency must meet the standards in the Child Care and Early Years Act 2014.

To support high quality in their home child care environments, Providers must also follow the policies and procedures set out by the County of Wellington.

What are the benefits of being a licensed Provider?

  • The money that you earn is competitive with other forms of child care.
  • You receive additional payment for care on weekends or in the evening.
  • We pay you directly when families are supported with Fee Subsidy.
  • Our payments to you can be deposited right into your bank account.
  • We pay you when the children are away because they are sick or on vacation.
  • We celebrate your work with an event each year.

Our Home Child Care Advisors work with Providers by:

  • Meeting with you each month in your home child care.
  • Referring families who receive fee subsidy to your home child care.
  • Helping you to connect with other Providers.
  • Providing training and workshops.
  • Working with you, families, and community agencies to include children with disabilities and special needs.
