Family Day Care Network

Our FDC Network of approximately 52 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 450 children per year. We administer a Child and Adult Food Care Program (CACFP) contract that will subsidize the cost of meals to qualifying families.
