Home Child Care Program

Our Child Care Program, the original foundation of Compass Early Learning and Care, opened in 1981. We contract caring, qualified, self-employed individuals to provide child care in their own homes for up to 5 children aged 6 weeks to 12 years. These homes are located throughout the City and County of Peterborough as well as the City of Kawartha Lakes. Home Child Care offers a flexible, intimate service to families with sporadic schedules and working shifts, or who may want a smaller group environment for their children.
