Family Child Care programs consist of in-home care provided by licensed and affiliated providers. Trained FCC providers are available to provide daily, night, weekend, and unusual hours of care for children 2 weeks to 12 years of age. Providers are required to complete an extensive training program and are constantly monitored for quality to maintain licensing. Family Child Care is a realistic alternative to a center-based care program. FCCs provide home-like, individualized care.
