Daycare Course Details

The Home Daycare Course is a certified training that qualifies caregivers to open a daycare in their own home.

To clarify, the course covers licensing rules, business planning and marketing.  Secondly are policies and procedures, and parent information packages.

Thirdly, the home daycare course shows you ways to plan your day care.  For example, how to design your space, incorporate activity centres and develop day care schedules.  Above all we focus on child safety and healthy development.

The home daycare course covers general licensing child care requirements.  For instance, it specifically goes in depth regarding the licensing requirements in British Columbia.

In addition, for all other provinces/states in Canada and US, we provide links to local licensing offices.  After that students can visit the links to learn the licensing guidelines for where they live.  As a result students have access to licensing officers no matter where they live.

This online course is self paced. Students can begin the lessons when they login, and complete the course when they are ready. Becasue there is no time limit, students have life-time access to the course.

This online course is very informative and easy to follow. For example, I like the Quiz in each section to review what I’ve learned.  Also, I can learn this both in English & my first language, which is certainly very helpful to understand.
