We need approved Family Day Homes in Calgary. They’re run the way child care should be, with kids enjoying safe, high quality care.

Why would you want to run one? Easy. Running an approved Family Day Home — rather than an unlicensed, unapproved babysitting service — shows your community that you put safety first.

It can also lead to wage top-ups! Under the Child Care Licensing Act of Alberta, you can care for up to six children in your home without a license. If you get an agency approval (agencies like ours are approved by the Alberta government), your business becomes a Family Day Home.

As such, you get full agency support for training and monitoring, to ensure it’s operating optimally as a successful, profitable business that’s as safe as possible for the kids.

It’s easy for you to get up-and-running as an approved Family Day Home in Alberta, make a greatly yearly income and provide a needed service in the community. We’re here to help you do it.

Tell us why you’d want to run a Family Day Home. Right now, we’re looking to approve 10 new Family Day Homes.

Please email us at, in confidence, with your reasons for wanting to run a Family Day Home in Calgary and we’ll get back to you asap regarding 1) your eligibility for an agency approval, and, 2) next steps.
