The new Child Care Licensing Regulation will come into effect when the Child Care Licensing Act is proclaimed on November 1, 2008. The regulation reflects input gathered during two rounds of consultations with Albertans.
To support the Act and Regulation there will be Information Sessions starting September 9, 2008 in each region of the province. Two types of information sessions are being offered: sessions open to "all programs" will discuss changes to staff certification, administrative and program requirements. Sessions open to "child care professionals" will focus specifically on changes to staff certification requirements and the expanded equivalency models.
