Things to know about
choosing child care
Choosing a child care provider can sometimes be a hard and stressful thing to do. There are many different factors that need to be considered in finding someone who can meet your child’s and your family’s needs.
Why does quality matter? Research shows that high quality child care plays a positive and long-lasting role in the social and intellectual development of children, no matter what their social, cultural and economic background.
Why choose a child care provider approved by Family and Child Care Connections?
It can sometimes be hard to find child care that meets your child’s and your family’s needs. Family and Child Care Connections recruits, screens, and maintains a list of family child care providers who meet the standards we have developed for quality care. Family and Child Care Connections operates in St. John’s and is licensed by The Department of Education under the Child Care Legislation 2017. We are proud to be the first family child care agency formed and licensed in Newfoundland and Labrador.
All Family and Child Care Connections-approved family child care providers are screened and monitored to make sure they meet the guidelines outlined in Newfoundland and Labrador’s Child Care Legislation standards. These guidelines and standards ensure that the wellbeing of everyone involved-children, child care providers and parents-are maintained. Family and Child Care Connections also provides training and support to family child care providers.
CUPW Member Subsidy
A child care subsidy is available CUPW members once an appropriate child care setting and provider are approved by Family and Child Care Connections. More about member benefits.
Find a provider
The FCCC Directory of Approved Family Child Care Providers can help parents and providers connect. The Child Care Search allows searching by location and a means to contact providers.
Parental Responsibility: The names of the child care providers are available through the search and are in no way a recommendation of the service provided by a particular care provider. The parent(s) has the responsibility for ensuring that the child care arrangement ultimately chosen is suitable for the family’s needs.
