Victoria Child Care Resource & Referral is a quality enhancement program funded by the Government of British Columbia and sponsored by the Single Parent Resource Centre. Since 1990, we have been supporting families, child care providers, and the community in promoting quality child care throughout Greater Victoria, the Saanich Peninsula, and Southern Gulf Islands.
Victoria Child Care Resource and Referral offers support, information, training, and resources to member child care providers in Greater Victoria, the Saanich Peninsula, and Southern Gulf Islands. By providing these services, the program aims not only to improve the standards of child care being offered in the community but also to increase the number of child care spaces available to families.
Family Child Care Training
Victoria CCRR's Family Child Care Training uses the three levels of instruction as developed by the Canadian Child Care Federation, a national organization whose mission is to achieve excellence through early learning and child care. Family Child Care Training prepares candidates to offer quality child care in their home. Topics include:
· Exploring child development
· Children's experiences and environments
· Guiding Children's Behavior
· Health, Safety, and Nutrition
· Ethics, Partnerships and Communication
· Caring For Yourself
There are seven (7) sessions to the course. There are a number of chapters in each session. There will be multiple choice questions to answer at the end of each chapter. You will need to complete all seven sessions in order, a final Parent Contract assignment, and write a final exam at the Victoria CCRR office, to receive your certificate. The course and certificate are accepted by Community Care Facilities Licensing as full proof of training. The cost for the course is $150.00.
