Home Child Care

In addition to larger child care centres, home child care providers are also available to families in Toronto. Individual home child care providers are not licensed by the Ministry of Education, but many are contracted by licensed home agencies.


You can find a list of licensed home child care agencies here. Prices will vary by centre.


This type of child care is typically run out of someone’s home, and group sizes are much smaller than a bigger daycare. Licensed home child care providers are not allowed to care for more than 6 children, including their own children under the age of 4.


The City of Toronto also operates its own Home childcare agency.  Information and fee information can be found here.
