Legal stuff my very nice lawyer says I should tell you… I do not represent or work for the Ontario Government. I doubt they could pay me enough to get me to stop being my own boss, interact daily with my fabulous clients, impact children through my daily care, and have the freedom to state some of the negative affects of the CCEYA as I see them. The information on this website is based on my thorough understanding of the regulations that have been passed, but I have not been authorized to give legal or other advice on what the Bill states or how you should apply it to your situation. Although I would never intentionally say or write anything that is not correct, I am human and have been known to make one or two mistakes in my life-time. 😉 If you have questions about the regulations, or before you make decisions that affect your home daycare, I encourage you to review the documents yourself, and/or contact the government directly to get information for your specific situation. I encourage you to read the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 (CCEYA) in full, the regulations regarding the CCEYA, and the Ontario Government’s pamphlet “What Parents and Providers need to know”. I allow people to comment on my posts and do not necessarily agree with all comments made. I welcome other people's view points, as long as they are shared in a respectful way, and the message is not illegal, or one of hate, discrimination, vulgarity, pornography, etc. While I will often mention if I disagree with a comment, it should not be presumed to be accurate or in line with my beliefs just because it is present on my website. I also share websites or other bloggers work from time to time. While I wouldn't share it if I didn't see merit in it, I do not necessarily agree with everything you will read or see when you leave this website. Please notify me if you feel I would have concerns about something I am directing you to. I will always give credit when possible for both photos and written content. If you feel I have used something without permission and/or giving credit, please contact me so that I can make it right (remove it or mention your name etc). If I give personal examples of income I or others have earned, or money we have saved, they are accurate, to the best of my knowledge, at the time of the post. However, the information is shared to encourage you, and give you examples of what is possible. Nothing stated is a guarantee of how much you will earn or save, as there are many factors to consider. These include but are not limited to your location (size and appearance of your home, vacancy rates and cost of childcare in your area), your education, abilities, program and food offered etc. Only you can evaluate risks and benefits and make decisions for your own situation.
I am not liable for any consequences resulting from applying information contained on this site, on my FB page, or in videos. This includes, but is not limited to, lost income, fines or convictions under the CCEYA, etc.
