Types of Child Care

Family Child Care Providers(FCC) are registered by New York State Office of Children and Family Services.

• A FCC Provider can care for 8 children.

• A FCC Provider cannot legally care for more than two (2) children under the age of twenty four months (24) unless another approved caregiver is on site.

• An indicator of quality child care would be to have a smaller adult to child ratio than is required by the state.

• Family Child Care Programs may be accredited through the National Association of Family Child Care (NAFCC).
