    No.

    Alberta has one of the highest allowances for children. Most provinces are allowed less than 6 including their own children. Going over your provincial ratios, even with the help of a second adult, is always illegal.

    People who offer child care out of their homes, that have not been approved to operate under the provincial family day home category, are considered private babysitters. These programs can offer private babysitting to up to six children, not including their own, at any given time. These programs are not monitored by the Government of Alberta.

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.
Updates
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
