Family Child Care

A family child care program is a form of early childhood education in which a caregiver looks after children in their own home, often with the help of an assistant. A family child care program is typically licensed for between 6 and 12 children, although these numbers do vary by state and by type of child care license. 

 

Because of these small, intimate environments, you will see many opportunities for 1:1 interactions between the provider and each child, mixed age groups, and the opportunity for continuity of care (where a child stays with the same caregiver over a long period of time).
