The Benefits of Child Care Homes

  • Unlike commercial day care centers, family child care homes provide children with a warm and caring home environment.
  • Child care homes offer a low child-to-adult ratio ┬áresulting in more individual attention for each child.
  • The continuity of care that child care homes provide through the children having the same care giver for several years, increases children’s capabilities┬áto bond with others, and promotes their long-term emotional well-being.
  • Many child care homes offer academic programs similar to those found in large centers.
  • Child care homes are often more affordable for families, because they are less expensive than most commercial centers.
