Family Child Care Course by CCEI Provides General Training for Family Care Providers

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an IACET approved, nationally accredited, online training institution dedicated exclusively to the child care and education workforce, is proud to announce the addition of ADM102: Family Child Care Basics to the online child care training course catalog.

The family (or home-based) child care industry has grown considerably in recent years. While licensing and other regulations vary widely from state to state, certain standards or “best practices” have surfaced to help ensure that children everywhere get the best care and early education possible. CCEI’s Family Child Care Basics course was designed to provide information, resources, and advice to family child care providers. Course participants will receive training regarding the business and regulatory side of family child care, as well as a basic overview of health, safety, child development, and educational issues relevant to those who use their homes to care for children.

“In certain respects, family child care providers need the same base of knowledge as all early childhood educators,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI, “but this course also addresses the unique characteristics of the family care setting, including not only health and safety issues but also budgeting challenges and curriculum ideas.”

ADM102 is a three-hour, beginner level course and is available for purchase through online enrollment at, or at no additional cost to current individual or center-based subscription account holders.
