Millions of young children across the country receive care in home-based settings. Family child care includes care in a child's home, care provided by relatives and license-exempt caregivers, and regulated large family child care homes. These resources can help in the development of targeted supports to strengthen the quality and stability of family child care.
Celebrating the First Anniversary of the New Child Care Law
It has been one year since the President signed the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 into law. The CCDBG Act of 2014, passed with bipartisan support in Congress, marked the beginning of a new era for child care in this country and an opportunity to improve the learning experiences of millions of children every day.
The Office of Child Care supports our grantees in various ways. Among the most important is our Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) system. The system brings together resources from the Office of Child Care, Office of Head Start, and our health partners to offer CCDF Administrators and their partners information, tools, training, and other supports.
