Administration for Family Child Care Course: Self-Paced Online (Register & Start Anytime)

July 12, 2021



Through interactive sessions, this 16-hour course guides participants to explore best practices in family child care as well as basic business practices like how to project a family child care business budget, record keeping, organizing expenses, and paperwork to be ready for tax season. We will identify and review policies and procedures needed in family child care and as a final assignment participants will create or review and update their own parent’s manual containing their centre’s policies, contracts, daily schedule, programming, etc. (i.e. Parent Package). 


  • Become familiar with CCRR best practices in family child care. 
  • Identify and review policies and procedures and create a Parent Package (parent’s manual containing centre’s policies, contracts, daily schedule, programming, etc.) or review and update an existing one. 
  • Explore basic business practices. 
  • Obtain basic knowledge about Affordable Child care Benefit. 
  • Learn effective strategies for forming positive relationships with families. 

Suitable for registered or licensed family child care providers who would like to refine their administration skills and/or review their Parent Package.  

This course is for participants who have taken the 20-hour Responsible Adult course and would like to continue their career in child care by opening their own family child care business. 

This 16-hour course alone does not qualify participants to become registered or licensed family child care providers, or open a family child care business. For more information contact your local Child Care Resource and Referral Office (CCRR) or Licensing Office.
