Supporting License-Exempt Family Child Care

This issue brief aims to assist CCDF Administrators and their partners in their work to support license-exempt family child care (FCC) homes. In addressing the unique needs of exempt FCC homes, States and Territories can better support the children in their care and their families. This brief is organized into two sections: the first provides an overview of terminology, characteristics, parental preferences, and child care assistance data, and the second provides examples of several state and national initiatives to support exempt FCC. It is one of a series of three issue briefs that offer insights into how States and Territories have improved their systems with new requirements, monitoring policies, and support systems for exempt providers.
