Did you know that private in-home child care is the most commonly used child care arrangement in our province? In reality, close to 80% of dayhomes in Alberta are private. Yet despite this widespread use of private child care 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 child care regardless of the circumstances in which they receive that care.
Embolden PDC believes that providers can have both autonomy and support and that private child care can be quality child care. 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 are no longer barred from accessing the support that is available through the licensed sector because they’ve chosen to run privately. And parents finally have a place they can go to learn more about quality private child care and how to keep their children safe when choosing a private dayhome.
quality private child care is an important part of the child care system in Alberta – helping to bridge the gap that we are currently experiencing in regulated child care.
Without the same level of monitoring that regulated child care programs receive, each individual private dayhome provider must be committed to offering a quality private child care program that puts the safety and well-being of children at the forefront of everything they do.
As a community, Embolden PDC members gain access to a wealth of resources & support that are focused on increasing protective factors in unlicensed care, helping to elevate the level of care being offered by the private dayhome community as a whole. With Embolden PDC, unlicensed dayhome providers are no longer invisible.
As a visible community of quality private child care providers we are able to advocate for the private dayhome community so that we can continue to access valuable resources and support that help increase protective factors in unlicensed care. Resources and support that ultimately benefit children in private care across the province.
