Home Child Care Program
Licensed Home Child Care Program
Mothercraft Ottawa’s Licensed Home Child Care Program has been providing quality child care for children from infancy to 12 years of age since 1983.
We offer unlimited child care spaces in areas throughout the City of Ottawa and subsidized spaces are available upon approval by the City of Ottawa. Parents tell us that this program gives them the “best of both worlds” as they receive the benefits of a family atmosphere and individual attention, combined with legislated standards for quality and safety. Our program is licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education and governed by the Child Care and Early Year’s Act.
In alignment with the Minister of Education’s Policy Statement on Programming and Pedagogy, Mothercraft’s Programs are guided by “How Does Learning Happen”, Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years and by “Early Learning for Every Child Today (ELECT).
