The County of Huron believes that a child's experiences and interactions during their early years directly affect the quality of their lives.
Working with individuals, municipalities and agencies, Huron County Children's Services makes sure that families and child care providers can find the early learning programs and child care support needed in our community.
We are here to provide all children and their families easy access to:
- Parent education
- Early learning activities and resources
- Connections to other community agencies or programs
- Information on choosing quality child care
In Huron County, there are different types of child care options to meet the needs of parents, families and children. No one type of child care is right for everyone. You will find full and part-time child care in centres or private homes available throughout the County.
Making a decision about child care can be one of the most difficult decisions a parent can make. Are you only interested in child care centres or do you prefer a licenced home child care setting? Is a licensed setting important to you? What are the differences? Does your child have special needs? Do you need financial help to cover your child care costs? Huron County Children's Services has trained staff available to help parents and care-givers in making these decisions.
