As a child care provider in our community, your child care setting can be listed for referrals.
After gathering pertinent information on Licensed providers or screening* Licence-not-required providers we include you on our referral list.
As we receive calls from parents we create a file for them and their information is processed and referrals are made to care providers based on a parents needs and a providers services.
It is extremely important that you contact our program whenever you have any changes to your child care program such as vacancies or hours, as this allows us to give current and accurate referrals to parents seeking child care.
