Licensed Private Home Child Care

Private home child care is licensed care in the home of a Provider. Private home child care is a family-like setting for children 0 to 12 years. The County of Wellington has a license with the Ministry of Education to run a private home child care agency.

Private home child care providers are contracted by the County. They must meet Ontario's licensing standards for child care. Providers must have clear police and Family and Children's Services checks. They must have up to date immunizations; and, they must have liability insurance. Each Provider's home is inspected regularly.
