The Family Child Care Network (FCCN) offers specialized programs for infants, toddlers, and 3-K children in the comforting environment of licensed and qualified home-based child care providers. These programs cater to mixed-age groups, encompassing children from birth to twelve years old.

Aligned with the standards set by center-based and district school 3-K programs, the FCCN programs operate under the supervision of the Department of Education and a Family Child Care Network organization. This partnership ensures that providers receive essential instructional resources, coaching, and comprehensive family support.

Enrolling children in Family Child Care homes offers several unique advantages for families:

At PS FamilyNYC, we firmly believe that our foremost duty is to ascertain that all our home-based programs deliver a safe, nurturing, and healthful environment for children.

As such, the Network is committed to assisting our affiliated providers in meeting and maintaining compliance with licensing and registration procedures as stipulated by the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS).

Our dedicated Network Monitoring Team is integral to this commitment. They undertake monthly visits to our affiliated providers, guided by the Department of Early Childhood Education (DECE) Monitoring Checklist. These visits serve as a mechanism to ensure affiliated providers adhere to program requirements and maintain comprehensive documentation.

These monitoring visits further offer valuable opportunities for our team to observe provider operations in real-time. This helps us formulate personalized coaching plans and provide follow-up technical assistance as necessary. By refining the operational aspects of our programs in this way, we strive to guarantee the highest quality of care for the families who entrust us with their children’s wellbeing.
