Requirements to work in regulated family child care - Manitoba


There are no certification requirements for a family child care provider.  Providers are required to complete an approved 40-hour post-secondary course in family child care or ECE within the first year of operating.  Relevant course work completed in the previous eight years is considered valid.

Providers who are classified as an ECE II or ECE III may charge a higher daily fee, equivalent to the fees charged in child care centres.

Providers are assessed by the Manitoba Child Care Program for suitability to provide care based on recognized family child care competencies.  Providers require a first-aid certificate with CPR training relevant to the age group being cared for.

All adults in family must have clear criminal record check.
