    Required Education/Certifications for Opening a Daycare in Montreal?

    Hi there! I am an American Citizen who has recently become a Permanent Resident of Canada living in Montreal. My background is in education and childcare and I'm hoping to open up a dance in Montreal somewhere down the line, but I'm wondering what certifications or education are required to do this? Someone told me I have to go to Cegep for early childhood, but I can't imagine that's the only way. I have the link to the Quebec Daycare Regulations page (https://www.mfa.gouv.qc.ca/fr/servic...ges/index.aspx) however, I don't speak French well, so I haven't been able to scour it thoroughly. So apologies if my answer is somewhere in there. Thanks for your help!

    Quebec has a very unique child care system. There used to be one lady here in Quebec but other than her, you might be best talking to a child care provider in your area to see what requirements are. There also must be a number to contact your department somewhere.

    Going to Cegep? It's a good solution, but only for those who speak less French. When I arrived, I studied French for a couple of years to understand the speakers in Cegep. After the training, I was able to get a certificate that helped with my plan to open a dance school for young children. I thought long and hard about this idea because I love dancing and children.

    You've also heard of the uniqueness of the Quebec program. I wanted to do it, but after much thought, I decided to help schoolchildren and students differently. I know from personal experience that there are many problems during my studies. These problems can be solved through the website https://studyclerk.com/college-essay-help , which provides college essay help.This contributes to less stress on the student and more opportunities for relaxation. For some reason I have some concerns when working with the younger generation, because it is a huge responsibility...

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.
