Family Childcare Network

With funding through the California Department of Education, Hope Street Margolis Family Center has organized a network of 10 licensed family childcare providers who offer developmentally enriched childcare for infants, toddlers, and pre-school aged children. Once licensed, providers participate in intensive, ongoing training and technical assistance activities that ensure high-quality care. This project also has served as an incubator for small family businesses. 

Childcare Provider Goals for Children

  • Provide a safe, loving, consistent environment in which the child feels secure
  • Offer daily opportunities to explore and grow
  • Maintain a regular schedule that includes adequate nutrition, varied activities, and rest
  • Respect the child’s uniqueness, and address his/her individual needs



Childcare Provider Goals for Parents

  • Establish open lines of communication with the program staff and regularly be informed about their child’s progress and development
  • Support each parent in achieving their own goals and the goals set for their child
  • Contribute towards an atmosphere of mutual respect and appreciation within our diversified community
