Family Child Care

As the number of working parents increases, so does the need for childcare with greater flexibility. Here, parents have an option of selecting different types of care. The choice may be a home environment with smaller child/adult ratios. This type of care can be found in a Family Child Care home. A Family Child Care home provides high quality care within a safe environment. In addition to attentive supervision, age appropriate activities are offered to the children that will promote development in all areas: social/emotional, cognitive (intellectual) and physical. Children's positive self-esteem will be promoted through appropriate expectations and guidance as well as varied learning opportunities. Family Child Care also offers free training and assistance to become a certified home daycare provider by the state of Texas. The Family Child Care has a large inventory of child care items from cribs to toys that are checked out on a loan basis to assist individuals with their home child care. Call 696-2839.
