QCCM Training and Professional Development

Licensing the QCCM Program gives family child care providers in your community access to unique training and professional development opportunities. The AVANCE QCCM training and professional development is based on three core principles.

Focus on Early Childhood Development

Learning grounded in current research related to child development from birth through school age (five or six).

Tools for Business Development

Learning that supports the creation of at-home child care businesses and includes easy-to-use tools available in English and Spanish. 

Create a Network of Support for Family Child Care Providers

Learning includes opportunities for child care providers to meet with each other to build a strong network of support.

AVANCE has positively impacted my personal and professional life. It has been motivating for my career in child care. The training in different areas of finance and child development has complemented and increased my knowledge and thus helped me to help other child care providers. I have no hesitation in recommending AVANCE to people who wish to prepare and receive training in child care.

In total, the QCCM modules provide 40 hours of training and professional development.


Yamile Santos

"The QCCM program has been a great support for my program."

Yamile began providing home-based child care in 2009 in Sunnyvale, California. In 2021, she opened a new home-based child care business in Austin, obtaining a license for 12 children. Remarkably, within 18 months, her Texas program surpassed the original, boasting full capacity and a waiting list.
