Child Care

Child Care Professionals are specially trained to understand child development. They learn how to provide guidance to children and how to create stimulating environments for children to explore and interact.

Child Care Professionals can work with infants as young as 3 months old, toddlers, preschoolers, or school age children. They can work in group child care centres, nursery schools or family child care homes. They are part of a team that partners with parents to help children develop to their full potential.
