Number and Ages of Children

Our agency serves children ages 2 months to 12 years of age.  Each care giver serves a slightly different age group and mixture of children.  By law, each approved family home care giver is permitted to care for a maximum of 7 children at a time, including their own children, and must not have any other children in their care, subject to the following restrictions:

     a) no more than 2 of the 7 children may be infants (0-17 months inclusive);

     b) no more than 3 of the 7 children may be toddlers or younger than toddlers (0-35 months inclusive)

If a care giver is only looking after school aged children, they may care for a maximum of 9 school age children at a time, including their own children, and must not have any other children in their care.  If a care giver is looking after only infants, then the care giver may care for a maximum of 3 infants at a time, including their own infants, and must not have any other children in their care.
