Licensed Home Child Care

Our Home Child Care program, the largest of all our programs, has been in operation since 1972 and provides service to over 400 children on a daily basis.

Our licensed Home Child Care program offers families the option of child care in a safe and nurturing home setting. Our dedicated providers, with the support of our professional team of Child Care Advisors, ensure children receive early learning opportunities in a stimulating environment.
