Note: I will try to stick to our daily schedule but, we all know that sometimes days don’t go as planned. If we get off track, I will quickly try to get back on track. I will let the children take the lead and if something isn’t going as planned, we may transition into another activity. Infants are the only ones that will lead on their own schedule.

What is Licensed Family Child Care?

Licensed Family Child Care is when one experienced educator operates out of her or his home with a maximum program size of six to ten students.

To become licensed, a provider must go through:
  • A 3-part background check for every person in the household
  • Rigorous home inspection & unannounced visits from EEC Licensors at least once per year to ensure a healthy & safe environment
  • 10+ hours of continuing education per year
  • Pediatric CPR & First Aid certification
  • Medication Administration training
  • Training in Safe Sleep, Childhood Health & Nutrition

NeighborSchools partners meet or exceed all EEC licensing requirements, and many have 10+ years of professional experience prior to opening their own program.
