Child Care in Niagara Region

We operate five licensed child care centres and there are over 160 licensed centres in Niagara to choose from.

Our centres are for children from 18 months to six years of age. We also manage a home child care program for children from birth to 12 years of age.

Licensed by the Ontario Government

Licensed child care programs must meet and maintain specific provincial standards set out in the Day Nurseries Act. These standards provide for the health, safety and developmental needs of the children.

At least once a year, staff of the Ministry of Education make unannounced inspections of all licensed child care programs to:

  • Make sure that provincial standards are being met
  • Issue and renew licences
  • Investigate complaints
  • Monitor operators who are having difficulty meeting licensing standards

Reports Available Online

Licensing reports for all home-based and centre-based licensed child care programs are available on the provincial child care website.
