Family-based Childcare in Worcester

Children’s Services of Roxbury’s (CSR) Family-based Childcare program in Worcester is comprised of 40 early education providers in the Greater Worcester area. We serve 280+ children daily across our network of educators, ranging from ages 3 months to 6 years old.

CSR recruits, trains, and provides supportive services to its network of Family-based educators. All educators within our Worcester network have Child Development Associate (CDA) accreditation and implement a wraparound model of culturally competent childcare that addresses the specific needs of children and their families, building on their strengths and supporting their goals, and providing a healthy, educational, professional, and nurturing environment for children and their guardians.

All Family-Based educators must adhere to and comply with the following Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) requirements:

  • Programs are healthy, safe, and offer activities that help the child grow and develop
  • Educators are certified in first aid and CPR
  • Educators have specialized training in child development and curriculum implementation
  • Programs maintain appropriate ratios of teachers to children
  • Educators undergo a criminal background check
