Health and Safety Documents refer to many other policies required by members under Health and Safety Standards, Incident/Illness Reporting/Response and Health and Wellness

There are also up-to-date and legally compliant Human Resources documents available for the PCPC members in regards to staffing and required policies and procedures.

As all the PCPC members know, the changes with the Child Care and Early Years Act CCEYA have been plentiful and we are still obtaining new information and updates from the Ministry of Education as the new sections come into practice.

The addition of the Program Statement was one of the largest areas and we are currently updating the pieces we have already put together to ensure it will meet the needs of our centres and meet the licensing requirements. We will inform our members in an email when this will be posted to the website however, the sample is available now if you wish to view.
