Screening and Monitoring
All day home operators providing child care through Kids@ Churchill Park have been carefully screened before being approved. This includes a police clearance check, child welfare intervention background checks, medical clearance, personal reference checks, questionnaires and a full home safety check.
All day home providers are required to complete an approved Child Care First Aid course, obtain a minimum Child Development Assistant Certificate (formally level one) in Early Childhood Education and outline an emergency plan and evacuation map.
Once a provider’s day home has been approved by Churchill Park, it becomes part of a thorough and ongoing monitoring program intended to ensure and improve upon the quality of care provided. Churchill Park Day Home Consultants or Managers visit all day home operators at least once a month to complete monitoring and reports, and to share resources, ideas and information with the child care provider. Additional support visits are provided when a need is identified or if a parent has a concern.
