Public Service Announcement
Licensed Family Home Day Care

Do you look after other people’s children in your home? Did you know that if you take care of more than four children (including your own), you are required to be licensed with the Department of Education?

Licensed family day care homes in Nunavut can charge parents regular fees and receive additional funding from the Department of Education. These facilities can also participate in training opportunities, have access to free resources for the children in their care, and gain advice and guidance from the Early Learning and Child Care division staff.

Please contact your regional Early Childhood Education Officer if you have any questions about home day cares or the licensing process. More information can be found at
