Staffed Family Child Care Network Cost Estimation Tool

The Family Child Care Network Cost Estimation Tool (CET) is designed to assist State, regional and local organizations in better understanding the costs associated with operating a staffed family child care (FCC) network. The CET can be used to estimate the operating costs for states and communities for services offered by a staffed FCC network. This document is a user's guide that provides instructions for the CET.

The calculator tool, which is a Microsoft Excel file, is available from the ECQA Center by emailing [email protected].
