What is quality child care? 

Quality Care supports a child’s emotional, social, intellectual and physical well-being.  There are two key components to consider when looking for quality child care:

  1. The Child Care Provider
  2. The Environment

Child Care Providers

Child Care Providers are the key to quality child care.  They are the individuals who interact with your child, plan activities to support the children, and communicate with you about your child’s daily activities.

The Environment

The Environment includes play spaces, the equipment and the daily activities.  All of these components need to be considered when looking for quality.

The Child Care Directory and Information Line (CCDIL) provides:

  • Free contact information about child care options in Halton
