Family Child Care

Being a family child care provider can be a satisfying career. You can make a big difference in the lives of the children and parents you work with. It is also a chance to own and run your own business. Many family child care providers start their business while they still have young children of their own. They often continue to provide family child care long after their own children are grown.

We offer one 3 hour session each month where we go over everything you need to know to open and run a Family Child Care Program. We will go over New York State regulations and help you with the paperwork. Check our events calendar for upcoming sessions.


Child Care Centers

Running a child care center is like running a very busy small business. But it's much more than that -- it's making a commitment to be an important part of the lives of children. A successful child care manager is an early childhood educator, business manager, fiscal administrator, safety and health officer and building architect. We will help you through the process of starting and running a center.

The New York State Office of Children and Family Services has a complete list of regulations for each type of child care on their website.
