Live in Caregiver (Childcare)
Brief Program Description
The Live in Caregiver (childcare) program is a training program that prepares students to work for Canadian families or organizations providing caregiving services for children. Students will gain essential skills, including knowledge of Canadian Culture, interpersonal communication skills, guiding children’s behaviour, and other health and safety related skills required to be a live-in caregiver.
Home child care providers care for children on an ongoing or short-term basis. They care for the well-being and physical and social development of children, assist parents with child care and may assist with household duties. They provide care primarily in their own homes or in the children’s homes, where they may also reside. They are employed by private households and child-care agencies, or they may be self-employed. Foster parents are included in this unit group.
