Family Child Care (FCC) Network
Funded by New York City Department of Education, Chinese-American Planning Council, Inc. (CPC) has been contracted to operate three Family Child Care (FCC) Networks in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens. The FCC Networks assist families in applying for subsidized child care and help parents find high-quality in-network family child care providers for children aged 6-weeks to 3 years old.
Each FCC Network supports a system of Family Child Care Providers (FCCPs) who provide home-based family child care services at their home. To ensure the Family Child Care Providers (FCCPs) are supported to perform at their best, FCC Network Education Director and Education Specialist visit the provider’s program regularly to provide on-site counselling and coaching, and Network Monitoring Specialist conducts monthly Monitoring Checklists.
The checklist ensures providers are up to code on health & safety practices and required administrative paperwork and documentation. And to increase the capacity of FCCPs to provide children with a high-quality education, Network Educational Specialists offer professional development training on child care regulations, research-supported curricula, responsive caregiving and technical assistance. The Network Education team also supports providers in the completion of Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ-3), implementing DOE’s curriculum through coaching visits, and guiding providers in the transition to being part of DOE.
