Eighty-four Day Care centres licensed in 2017

Some 230 of the 364 Early Childhood/Day Care centres located countrywide were registered by the Ministry of Social Protection’s Childcare and Protection Agency (CPA) in 2017, while 84 were licensed.

This was stated by CPA’s Early Childhood Development Manager, Concheeta Gray during an interview with the Department of Public Information (DPI), on Wednesday.

Gray told DPI that once the facilities (day and night care, after-school care, home-based care and play groups) are licensed, it means that they would have met the minimum standards in keeping with the regulations for child-care centres.
