Family Child Care Network
The FCCN are programs offered to infants, toddlers and 3-K in a home setting by licensed, qualified, child care providers.
In this setting, children are served in mixed-age groups with other children from birth to twelve years old.
These programs are consistent with 3-K programs offered in center-based and district school settings, and are overseen by the Department of Education and a Family Child Care Network organization that provides instructional resources, coaching, and family support.
Families may choose to enroll their children in Family Child Care homes because of their many unique strengths:
Services & Benefits
Early Childhood Education
We enhance the quality of child care experiences for numerous infants / toddlers in various locations of the Bronx, N.Y. through free training for providers, additional support services in the provider homes, and the purchasing of needed materials to produce a well-rounded learning environment.
As children fully participate in our program, the learning curve is enhanced as there is a emphasis on school-readiness goals.
