Family Child Care
For children 2 months – 12 years of age
Homes in our Family Child Care (FCC) network offer learning in a nurturing, small group setting. Professional educators chosen for their experience and understanding of child development work with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children. Individual attention, flexible hours, a variety of locations, and a nursery school large group experience for preschoolers are all benefits of the program.
Learning in FCC homes is guided by Creative Curriculum®, which provides a framework for creating an environment that moves and flows with children’s developing interests and changing needs. Children learn about themselves and the world around them; teacher-caregivers observe and monitor the healthy development of children.
Community Day Learning Family Child Care educators are licensed, visited by Community Day Learning staff, and receive training and development at regularly occurring meetings. Educators also hold the Child Development Associate (CDA) credential or are enrolled in a college degree program. The CDA credentialing program marks the ability to meet the specific needs of children and work with parents and other adults to nurture children's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth in a child development framework. Many of the network’s providers are also bilingual in Spanish and English.
A full or partial day program can be coordinated with parents’ schedules.
Family FCC Educators homes range in size up to a maximum of 6 children or up to 10 children if the FCC Educators is licensed accordingly and has a full-time licensed assistant.
