Family Based Child Care System

kid computerWhat is Family Based Child Care?

This type of early education and care is delivered in a provider's home. Children in a family child care home may range in age from infant through school age and programs may serve between a maximum of six or ten children (with an additional assistant).

Almost all child care provided outside a child’s own home, whether it be in a center-based program, an after school program, or in a family child care home, must be licensed or authorized by EEC.

An EEC license means that:

  • Programs must be healthy safe and offer activities that help your child develop and grow.
  • Providers in first aid and are CPR certified.
  • Providers have specialized training in child development and curriculum implementation.
  • Programs must maintain appropriate ratios of teachers to children.
  • All providers are required to undergo a criminal background check.

Finally, all CSR providers are CDA licensed and incorporate a wraparound model providing a healthy, nuturing, educational, professional and loving environment for children and their parents.
