Cross Cultural Family Center Cross Cultural Family Center was established in 1969 to continue the efforts of a demonstration project called Nurseries in Cross Cultural Education. The nursery schools provided an opportunity for a diverse group of families to join together and work cooperatively in addressing the developmental and educational needs of their children. When funds for this five-year project ended, the families and staff wished to continue their involvement in such a program, and so Cross Cultural Family Center was created. The mission of CCFC is to provide child care services in cross cultural settings. It includes a commitment to high quality, community based, and developmentally appropriate early care and education services. It further includes recognition of the significant role of family and community in promoting positive development of young children. Our goal is to maximize the positive potential of the diversity among our children, their families, our staff, and the communities in which we live. Today, CCFC serves over 200 families in six childcare centers throughout San Francisco. We continue to foster safe and healthy community environments for children and their families. All families are welcome in our programs,regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.
