Family Childcare Network

Family Childcare Network offers developmentally enriched childcare for infants, toddlers, and pre-school aged children in up to 12 centers trained by Hope Street Family Center.  The centers are childcare family homes in the community.   This network is part of Hope Street Family Center's effort to promote entrepreneurship by helping families establish child care small businesses and provide technical assistance to assure that the care is provided in an enriched early education environment.
