Embolden PDC Community Standards

Learn more about the Embolden PDC Community Standards and how we encourage our community to go above and beyond the minimum standards for unlicensed child care in Alberta.


Maximum 6 Children

Alberta law states that a childcare license is required for any childcare program that cares for more than 6 children. This means that unlicensed childcare providers can care for a maximum of 6 non-custodial children at one time (6 children plus their own). Multiple providers are permitted in one home – but this does not increase the number of children that can be cared for.


Criminal Record Check

Clean criminal record check with vulnerable sector, renewed each year.

Intervention Record Check

Clean Children’s Services intervention record check, renewed each year.

First Aid & CPR

Valid first aid certification from a recognized training program.

We accept parent feedback regarding Embolden PDC members at anytime. Frequent and repetitive negative feedback will be investigated and a member may lose verified member status if applicable.
