Leadership for Family Child Care: The Promise of Staffed Family Child Care Networks
This issue brief summarizes findings from the National Study of Family Child Care Networks, that conducted surveys, did qualitative interviews, and compiled case studies about Staffed Family Child Care Networks (SFCCN). These networks increase support for family child care providers by offering services such as training, home visits, support groups, and business and administrative supports. SFCCN are one promising practice that may help turn around the dramatically decreasing numbers of family child care providers.
