Home Based Child Care Certificate Program

Mothercraft College provides foundational training to individuals who are interested in providing quality child care in their own homes. A home child care is a business that requires energy, patience and training. We offer programs onsite at the College as well as at community agency locations.

What is the Home Based Child Care Certificate?

The Home Based Child Care Certificate is a certificate of attendance indicating completion of a 12 session (24 hours) program. The Home Based Child Care (HBCC) training certificate is awarded to individuals who have attended and participated in the Program. The HBCC Program is designed to provide basic information to individuals interested in providing child care in their own homes and in no way guarantees that the participant has achieved any level of child development knowledge usually determined through course examination. There is no admission requirement or assessment of participants, therefore Mothercraft cannot guarantee the level of understanding and knowledge acquired through attendance in the Program. It is recommended that individuals join a licensed Home Child Care Agency through which supervision and on-going professional development will support the delivery of quality child care.
