Family Child Care Home Education Network

What is a Family Child Care Home Education Network?

The Family Child Care Home Education Network (FCCHEN) is made up of a group of licensed child care providers in the Antelope and San Fernando Valleys.  These child development programs are small, carefully selected home based environments for whom CCRC provides ongoing training, professional development and supportive technical assistance.  FCCHEN environments combine the standards of a first-rate child care center with the personal touch and familiarity of a home environment. Children are cared for in a safe and healthy environment, enjoy developmentally and age-appropriate activities, and nurturing interactions with staff.

The California Department of Education also offers financial assistance for families who qualify to gain access to these high quality programs.  This ensures that low-income families can provide their children with the best care while they work or attend school or training.  FCCHEN providers work with parents to create a close relationship that benefits the child.

As part of the Family Child Care Home Education Network, your child will receive:

  • High quality care in licensed home-based child care facilities.
  • Meals that meet nutritional guidelines and standards.
  • Personalized support and activity planning to meet your child’s developmental needs.
  • Child observations and parent conferences to ensure individual needs are met.
  • Subsidized funding though the California Department of Education for income eligible families.

  • Unique professional growth and education opportunities.
  • Free resources and materials to support children’s development.
  • One-on-one mentoring and program planning to ensure high quality services.
