Creating the conditions for family child care to thrive: Strategies for increasing the supply, quality, and sustainability of family child care in states and communities

Resource Type: Other
Author(s): Vieira, Natalie; Hill, Shannon;
Date Issued: October, 2019
Publisher(s): All Our Kin
Description: This publication presents a framework for how stakeholders can create the conditions for family child care to thrive in their communities, thereby increasing the supply, quality, and sustainability of child care options that meet the needs of all families. The framework is based on All Our Kin's two decades of experience in the field, as well as the lessons we've learned from family child care providers themselves and from our many partners across the country. We seek to answer the questions - What are the conditions that need to be present in every state and community for family child care, and the children and families it serves, to thrive? - How do we create these conditions? - Who has the power to create and/or influence these conditions? by offering concrete recommendations and strategies—at the intersection of policy and practice—for state and local leaders who are eager to support family child care.
