What is Licensed Family Child Care?

Licensed Family Child Care is a home-based service where child care is provided in the caregiver’s home. The home must be licensed in accordance with county and state laws. Licensed Family Child Care is the most preferred type of care for young children, especially infants and toddlers. Many family child care homes provide high quality programs for preschoolers, school age, and children with special needs. Family child care is “home-away-from-home” personalized professional care.
