The Florida Family Child Care Home Association, in an effort to more clearly understand the challenges and motivations for providers, contracted with Family Child Care Experts, LLC® to collect data from Florida family child care providers and provide analysis and recommendations.

The report was compiled using background information from the work of the Florida Family Child Care Home Association (FFCCHA), results of the Balance© Survey & Report conducted with FFCCHA membership, and anecdotal and survey information collected at the Family Child Care Make a Difference Sessions held at the 2022 FFCCHA Annual Conference in Clearwater, Florida.

The purpose of this brief is to raise awareness of the state of family child care in Florida in order to inform investments and legislative action that supports recruitment and retention of Family Child Care business owners, strengthening predominantly women owned and operated small businesses, and securing this important early care and education option for children and families.
