Best Practices Licensing Manual for Early Learning and Child Care Centres


About the Manual

The Early Learning and Child Care Program oversees the operation of licensed early learning and child care for children aged three months to 12 years of age across the province. Child care centres must be licensed every year.

This Licensing Manual has been written to:

  • provide a general overview of Manitoba child care standards along with relevant sections of the laws established under The Community Child Care Standards Act
  • provide additional guidelines to centres to help them understand the intent of specific regulations and describe how to meet the minimum requirements
  • provide well-researched ways to help improve program quality and ensure high quality early learning and child care
  • inform centres about the forms, procedures and ongoing responsibilities for licensing

Note: All documents on this page are in PDF format (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader).

The manual was last updated in October 2005.
