What is Family Child Care?

National Provider Appreciation Day is May 11, 2018         

View: Letter to Parents from FFCCHA President

Family Child Care is a home-based service where child care is provided in the caregiver’s home. The home must be Licensed or Registered according to county and state laws. Family Child Care is the most preferred type of care for young children, especially infants and toddlers.  Many family child care homes also provide high quality programs for preschoolers, Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program (VPK) school age and children with special needs. Some homes offer the Early Head Start program for infants to three years.

Family child care is “home-away-from-home” personalized professional child care.
