Edify's owner has been working in the childcare field since 1991. The need for After School Care became evident when the owner's own child turned 6 and had trouble finding After School Care in Vancouver. With a foot in the field, the owner decided to make a reasonable solution to help parents go back to work and also to help providers have a program that they could be proud of, from their own home.
Your Edify approved provider has a resume, criminal record check and references that have been reviewed. At the moment, the current After School Care caregiver is only required to have 20 hours of training. Our Edify Learning Space approved providers exceed requirements by having training that's relevant, such as experience in the education field or nursing.

Edify Learning Space Providers have gone through licensing standards and training to be responsible enough to exceed what's available.
Edify owners will receive a doctor's note stating that they are in stable mental & physical health to take care of children.
The Edify approved providers will undergo multiple reference checks and will be available for parents to view.
Although Edify approved providers may be first time business owners, they have a proven track record of providing responsible care. Check our Edify Learning Space provider prerequisites.
Edify Learning Space approved providers set up S.T.E.A.M. projects so children can learn at their own pace. For example, a child can learn about basic bridge building techniques through trial and error and using building materials.
Children will be picked up from their school. The Edify approved provider will accompany your child to their home by walking or bus pick up service depending on the number of children who will attend the Edify Learning Spaces program.

Edify Learning Spaces currently does not operate in the summer or school holidays. Parents are counting on your service through out the school year but that still leaves a lot of time during the winter, spring and summer breaks.
Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math schedules are sent to you at the beginning of the month. Your daily schedule will consist of pick up at the child's school, preparing safe & healthy snacks and priming a child for learning the Edify program.
