April is currently working hard to get her Family Child Care license with the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) in Massachusetts.

What is a Family Child Care License?

A Family Child Care license will allow April to legally operate a program out of her home. She must undergo a rigorous, state-mandated process, including:

  • A 3-part background check for every person in the household
  • Home inspection and unannounced visits from EEC Licensors at least once per year
  • 10+ hours of continuing education per year
  • Pediatric CPR & First Aid certification
  • Medication Administration training
  • Training in Safe Sleep, Childhood Health & Nutrition
When will Brickhouse Daycare open?

April should have her program up and running within a few months, but she is pre-booking enrollment now. to save your spot!

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.
