Family Child Care Homes

Toddlers thrive in an environment that supports language, socialization, and their growing sense of independence. Teacher-caregivers give individual attention to toddlers, guiding them through activities and interactions in small groups.

Learning is guided by Creative Curriculum®, which provides a framework for creating environments that move and flow with children’s developing interests and changing needs. Children learn about themselves and the world around them and are encouraged to feel capable as learners; teacher-caregivers are guided through a process of observing and monitoring the healthy development of children.

A typical day includes: a healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack; tooth brushing; free play; circle and music; fun learning activities: painting, coloring, cutting, gluing, Play-Doh, sand or water play; gross motor play (outdoors if possible); and stories.

A full or partial day program can be coordinated with parents’ schedules. A summer program is available.

Large Family Child Care homes are staffed with 1 provider and a full-time licensed assistant with up to 3 children under the age of 15 months, 3 children between 15 and 24 months, and additional children over age 2, with a total of up to 10 children.
