"Being an immigrant I did not know about laws, policies, taxes, and culture regarding home daycare. The ladies from the association helped me with those and many more advices. I have been running my home daycare for eight years and look forward to the workshops and meetings." Martha
"Having been a daycare provider in Oakville for 21 years, I wish I had been a part of HCCPA since the beginning. The support to providers through training and group meetings and the integrity of this association who strive to provide quality home daycare to the community is invaluable." Lynne
"At the time I joined HCCPA Oakville, I was fairly new to home daycare. Right from the very first meeting, I was greeted with a warm welcome and invited to share any questions or concerns. The ladies that night, helped me problem solve some challenges in my daycare, and I came out of the that meeting feeling rejuvenated. I immediately felt like I was part of a positive community and in turn was reminded of my self-worth. I have been a member for quite some time, and the feeling has never lagged." Mary
