Did you know that private in-home childcare is the most commonly used childcare arrangement in our province? In reality, close to 80% of dayhomes in Alberta are private. Yet despite this widespread use of private childcare arrangements, private dayhome providers experience great difficulty in accessing resources and support to help guide them on their dayhome journey. Resources and support that would help to ensure the care they are providing is of the utmost quality for the children they are entrusted with.
all children in alberta deserve access to safe and quality childcare regardless of the circumstances in which they receive that care.
Embolden PDC believes that providers can have both autonomy and support, and that private childcare can be quality childcare. We are passionate about connecting private providers with the resources and support they need to be their best so that the children of Alberta receive the best.
Despite popular belief, operating a dayhome business is no walk in the park and private dayhome providers are at an increased risk of experiencing isolation and burnout.
SURROUNDING YOURSELF WITH COMMUNITY AND SUPPORT IS THE KEY TO LONGEVITY AND SUCCESS IN YOUR DAYHOME BUSINESS.
Embolden PDC is Alberta’s first and only private dayhome support network. A place where private providers can access the resources and support they need to start or run a quality dayhome business with a focus on child safety and overall well-being.
Private dayhomes no longer have to sacrifice the support that is available through dayhome agencies because they’ve chosen to run privately. And parents finally have a place they can go to learn more about quality private childcare and how to keep their children safe when choosing a private dayhome.
quality private childcare is an important part of the childcare system in Alberta – helping to bridge the gap that we are currently experiencing in regulated childcare.
Without the same level of monitoring that regulated childcare programs receive, each individual private dayhome provider must be committed to offering a quality private childcare program that puts the safety and well-being of children at the forefront of everything they do.
As a community, Embolden PDC members are collectively committed to going above and beyond the minimum requirements for private in-home childcare helping to elevate the level of care being provided by the private dayhome community as a whole.
As a visible community of quality private childcare providers we are able to advocate for the private dayhome community so that we can continue to access valuable resources and support. Resources and support that ultimately benefit children in private care across the province.
