Family Home Child Care
Regulations for Family Child Care Homes from the State of Vermont Agency of Human Services, Department for Children and Families (DCF), Child Development Division (CDD), which oversees all aspects of registered family child care homes in Vermont, are found here and extra copies are available to Family Child Care Homes in Chittenden County and may be picked up at our Williston office.
Family Child Care Preschool Partnership
Family Child Care providers often find that when children reach the age of 3, parents think it’s time to consider a larger child care center. Now, with the support of public schools and Child Care Resource, parents who prefer the personal feeling and lower cost of an in-home family child care setting can be assured that their child will receive high quality preschool experiences. Family child care providers receive consultations from a licensed early childhood educator to support professional development, develop curriculum which aligns with the Vermont Early Learning Standards (VELS), and document children’s progress through Teaching Strategies GOLD Assessment System. This support ensures that children in family child care settings will receive early learning opportunities and experiences which provide the foundation for future success in Kindergarten.
In the 2013-2014 school year, 5 FCC providers participated in this project in collaboration with the Burlington School District, South Burlington School District and Chittenden South Supervisory Union.
