Building a community of family child care providers

Welcome to the AVANCE Quality Child Care Matters (QCCM) Program, which is transforming family child care through education, support, and community building. We provide the tools, resources, and nurturing environment for family child care providers to thrive. Our comprehensive program is built around three core objectives:

Creating self-sustaining support networks for local family child care providers

Promoting family choice and the use of family child care

Enhancing the standard of care for children within family child care homes

I consider myself blessed, having registered for a Saturday conference last year. I was able to connect with people I hadn't seen for years, even before the pandemic. They were so enthusiastic about the many benefits afforded them by this group that I was curious and anxious to join. Since then, the trainings have been convenient and informative. The fellowship, encouragement, humor, and anecdotes offered by the other members make it both enjoyable and vital to my business. Thank you for the chance to participate in this year's program.
