Getting Started

If you are interested or have wonderings in becoming a day home educator with our licensed agency please contact Jen through telephone or email. The agency will discuss the process and provide you with a day home educator handbook and application.  After submission of the application we will organize a time to meet. As per Government regulations, the first two initial meetings in the home will include all individuals that reside in the home. Next, the agency will complete visits to the home that will discuss environment, safety, general operations and needs of the prospective day home educator.  Each visit length is unique to the individual ensuring they receive the time and materials to feel valued and supported on their journey. Once approved by the agency registration of children into the day home program will commence.
