Thinking about expanding or improving your family child care business? 4Cs is here to help you!
If you are a current family child care provider who wants to improve business practices, expand from a small to a large family child care business, or learn more about providing quality care that supports children's early development and learning, we can help you.
- To learn more about operating your business, sign up to attend our free trainings on business practices, child development, and providing quality care. Find the workshop schedule on our website: 4Cs' Calendar.
- Contact us with your questions and concerns. We have staff members who speak English, Spanish, and Chinese.
In addition, if you live in Fremont, Hayward, or Unincorporated areas of Alameda County AND you meet low income guidelines, you may be eligible for our Child Care Initiative Project (CCIP). Participants in this project receive free, individualized coaching, consultation, and technical assistance on business practices, enhancing your home environment, and a wide variety of other topics related to children and child care. Staff members can also assist you with the licensing expansion process, helping you complete the application. Participants receive financial incentives, such as reimbursements for business costs, safety items, equipment, early education materials, and professional development costs. Some space may be available for project participants in other cities, so call to inquire. All aspects of the program are available in English, Spanish, and Chinese
According to a recent CCIP participant: "I really enjoyed my time as a CCIP participant. I came away with new ideas and different ways to implement them. I loved it!"
