Red Deer Family Day Home

Family Day Home Providers are warm, mature persons who are able to provide a stable, nurturing environment for children.  Providers will work in partnership with Parents and Family Day Home personnel to ensure children learn and develop in a positive home environment. 

Who Is A Family Day Home Provider?

A Family Day Home Provider is a warm, mature individual who opens her home to care for infants, toddlers, pre-school and school-aged children while their parents work or attend school.  A Family Day Home Provider is self-employed and operates under contract with a Family Day Home Agency, who in turn contracts with Region 4, Central Alberta Child & Family Services Authority.

What Is A Family Day Home?

A Family Day Home provides a child care arrangement most like home.  Children are cared for in a safe, healthy and stimulating family environment.  Opportunities are offered for small-group play, as well as lots of individual attention.  At any one time, Family Day Home Providers may care for a maximum of six children 0-12 years old, including their own children.  These restrictions allow the Provider to meet the needs of each child.
