The Benefits of Child Care Homes

Family child care homes are advantageous to young children because children are able to build trust and a sense of stability through receiving care from the same caregiver for several years in a row.   This continuity of care allows children to become confident in their surroundings, which in turn promotes their sense of independence, readiness to learn, and willingness to explore through play and guided activities.  The low child-to-adult ratios in child care homes ensure that children receive the social and emotional attention that they need to thrive and grow.
