PS FamilyNYC proudly collaborates with the NYC Department of Education to operate an extensive Family Child Care Network.
Through this partnership, we deliver top-notch care to children from birth to 3 years old in over 100 licensed provider homes across Brooklyn and Queens.
At PS FamilyNYC, our goals align with the DECE’s Early Childhood Framework for Quality (EFQ), demonstrating our unwavering commitment to delivering high-quality early childhood care. Together with our affiliated providers, we collaboratively work with families to achieve the following:
Ensuring that all children develop the necessary foundations for lifelong learning, self-confidence, creativity, and social-emotional development.
Providing families with the resources and support needed to extend children's learning and development across all domains, while promoting their role as primary teachers in their children's lives.
Establishing linkages with community-based organizations to support the well-being and aspirations of our children and families.
BECOME AN AFFILIATE PROVIDER IN BROOKLYN & QUEENS
We view families as equal partners, primary caregivers, and advocates in their children’s development, engaging them in every aspect of our programs. Our expert professional staff provides comprehensive support to affiliated providers, including instructional resources, coaching, and hands-on program monitoring.
All providers within the PS Family Child Care Network are licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) and regulated by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), ensuring compliance with rigorous quality standards.
Family Child Care Curriculum
Our Family Child Care Curriculum revolves around the Let’s Play! approach, tailored specifically for mixed-age Family Child Care programs. This curriculum embraces responsive caregiving and play-based learning, acknowledging that learning takes place throughout the day in various routines and transitions.
It offers suggestions for enriching these moments through conversations, songs, and games. For our youngest children, establishing warm and predictable caregiving routines fosters trust and lays a solid foundation for their learning journey.
