Professional Family Child
Care Alliance of Georgia
Explore-FCC with PFCCAG
The Professional Family Child Care Alliance of Georgia (PFCCAG) announces the expansion of the Explore-Family Child Care project. If you are interested in offering affordable and high-quality early care and education in your home, while earning from $28,000, up to $50,000 per year (with correct marketing and full enrollment), the Explore-Family Child Care project may be just for you!
Established in 2020, the Explore-Family Child Care project was designed to recruit and prepare adults to become Georgia licensed family child care providers of children aged six (6) weeks to age 12. Funded by the United Way of Greater Atlanta, Explore-Family Child Care project specialists work with applicants to license their home to accept children and train applicants on best practice to teach children. Explore-Family Child Care project specialists use one-to-one training, coaching, and technical assistance before, during, and following the childcare licensing process.
Historically, the family child care learning home has been a foundation of learning where children are safe and protected in a home-based environment with a consistent, caring family child care provider. Research supports strong teacher-children’s relationships as essential to children’s learning and growth. If you ever considered helping families thrive by offering consistent and dependable care for children, while promoting a family’s culture, language, and values, the Explore-Family Child Care project is an extraordinary program. You can choose to specialize and cater to children and families with low or no income, families needing non-traditional hours of childcare, infants and toddlers, dual language learners, or even children with special needs. PFCCAG offers programs in English and Spanish.
