About Child Care Regulation Programme

Purpose

The Child Care Regulation Programme is the Section within the Department of Health that licences and regulates Day Care Centres and Day Care Providers in Bermuda. Our goal is to ensure the health and safety of young children, and to ensure the best possible care and support for children's development while in a child care setting.

Services

  • • Perform inspections and re-licensing of all Day Care Centres and Day Care Providers every 2 years.
  • • Carry out monitoring visits to ensure Day Care Centres and Day Care Providers are operating within the guidelines set out by the Day Care Centre Regulations 1999, The Children's Act 1998 and the Child Care Standards 2018
  • • Investigate concerns raised by members of staff, parents and the public as it relates to Day Care Centres and Day Care Providers to ensure compliance and best practice are being followed
  • • Vet staff to ensure they have the required qualifications, documentation and background checks before they commence working with young children.
