Family Day Care Network

Our FDC Network of approximately 48 participants provide licensed, safe, affordable childcare options to Cypress Hills families while simultaneously helping community women become family day care providers/owners of their own business.  Our dedicated English and Spanish Network providers care for nearly 350 children per year.
