What is a Registered License Not Required Child Care Setting?

The Kelowna Child Care Resource & Referral Program is funded by the Ministry of Family and Children Development. The CCRR follows a contract from the Ministry of BC which sets out health and safety requirements, staffing qualifications and standards for Registered License Not Required child care settings.  License Not Required child care providers care for for two children or less that are not related to them. There is an exception when there is a family of more than two children. (For example: if there is a family with 4 siblings, they can care for all of the siblings) but they may not take any other children.  

Each Registered Care Provider must complete all standards associated with the CCRR Program before providing care.  1)  Child Safe First Aid  2) Home Inspection  3) Cleared Criminal Record Check  4)  Cleared Health Reference  5) Two Character References     

In addition all care providers must Complete a Level I Training Course with the CCRR Program and maintain their training by completing 2 additional workshops/courses annually. Each care provider receives two visits and one Health & Safety Home Assessment annually.

This type of care provides yet another option for parents who are seeking a smaller one on one child care option and still have the reassurance that the care providers have met and exceeded requirements set out by the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
