Interested in Becoming a Family Child Care Provider?

Far from a simple babysitting service, the FCC Program is looking for individuals who wish to be child care professionals. You can operate your own home-based business, set your own hours, be with your children and care for other children at home. The FCC staff will train and help you provide safe and nurturing in-home care for children 2 weeks to 12 years in your home. You must be 18 years of age or older, able to speak English, in good mental and physical health and willing to undergo a comprehensive background check. After you complete a basic orientation program, you can set your own hours and fees and begin to care for children on an hourly, part-day or full-day schedule. Call now to get started.
