    Navigating ages of children and legal limits


    I am just starting out a home daycare and getting a lot of inquiries and interest. I am not sure if I am putting too much thought into this question or not.
    In Manitoba we can have 2 children under 2, and 2 over 2. If I have an 18 month old, and 2 over 2, will I have to "fire" (for lack of better words) the 18 month old in 6 months when he is 2, so that I am not over the limit? What do you do in these situations?
    Or do you very strategically plan out what ages you will have, and when?

    Thank you.

    I am in BC but it is the same answer - the guidelines are telling you what the youngest possible age grouping you can have is: Child 1 = 0mos, Child 2= 0mos, Child 3= 24mos, Child 4 =24mos. So you can have 3 kids over 2, but that doesn't mean you still get 2 under 2, it just means now you can only have 1 under 2.

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
