New Legislation for Day Care Operators in Ontario and First Aid Training Requirements

Synergy has been receiving a lot of communication and concerns over training requirements based on the new Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014.  We thought that we would provide some clarification on this matter through our blog.

What is Required:

As of August 31, 2015, the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 comes into affect.  This requires that all Day Care Centres in Ontario provide the following training:

  • Resource Teacher (55. (2)):  Every licensee shall ensure that every resource teacher has a valid certification in standard first aid, including infant and child CPR, issued by a training agency recognized by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board or otherwise approved by a director

  • Staff training and development (58. (2)):  Every licensee shall ensure that every employee working at a child care centre and every provider of home child care or in-home services has a valid certification in standard first aid, including infant and child CPR, issued by a training agency recognized by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board or otherwise approved by a director

How to comply:

Synergy is a licensed First aid and CPR Training Partner with the Canadian Red Cross Society.  As such we are WSIB Certified and provide the following course to help your organization meet these new requirements:

Red Cross Standard Childcare First Aid and CPR Training (2 Day Training)

Compliance Deadline:  September 16, 2016

 

Synergy is offering an early bird rate to any centre that books there service with us before December 31, 2015.   If your center is an Association of Day Care Operators of Ontario Member, you are in luck.  Synergy is a preferred provider for ADCO and we have a great savings program in effect.
