Northern Treasures Licensed Home Child Care
What is Northern Treasures?
Northern Treasures is a home based child care program operated by the Cochrane District Social Services Administration Board since 2004. Child Care is provided within the caregiver's home.
The agency is regulated by the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014, and is licensed by the Ministry of Education.
Care is provided in a private home. The home is inspected to meet health and safety requirements. Providers must be 18 years of age or older and are carefully screened and selected to offer a safe, nurturing learning environment. The provider is limited to small groups of six (or less) children and not more than two children under the age of two. They plan developmentally appropriated play based activities and provide meals and snacks following the guidelines as set out by Canada's Food Guide.
It is each child's right to be well cared for in a safe, nurturing environment. Private Home Child Care promotes the development of self-esteem in children by offering a flexible yet predictable routine, small group interaction and individualized attention.
