Family child care offers a unique learning environment in a home setting where children can learn through play and practical life experience. FCC homes often have multi-age group settings that allow children to learn from each other and allow siblings to stay together.
Smaller group sizes and low adult to child ratios mean that children can cultivate strong bonds with their caregivers. Providers can also work closely with parents on addressing the developmental needs of the children. The maximum capacity for a small license is 8 children and 14 for a large license.
Family child care services can be part-time or full-time. Many family child care providers offer more flexible schedules of operation than child care centers, with more nontraditional hours, including evenings, weekends, and before or after-school care.
