About the AFCCA

The Alberta Family Child Care Association is an affiliation of contracted family day home agencies in the province. The association was incorporated in January 1989 and has been engaged in promoting the health and well being of children and families ever since. As an affiliate of the Canadian Child Care Federation the association is involved in national efforts to promote standards and equity in the child care field. Provincially the association seeks to be a voice for families in developing standards that support quality child care. Two recent notable projects are the creation of the Family Child Care Consultant’s Resource Guide with its accompanying mentor program and the highly successful Family Child Care Professional Conference held annually. Members of the association give of their time on a volunteer basis to further the vital work of advancing the quality of child care in the day home sector.

“The hard reality is that unless parents have more #childcare options that they can trust, many will not go back to work, and that will hurt the economy. This issue is as important as reopening schools, but it hasn’t received adequate attention.” https://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/editorials/2020/07/08/coronavirus-exposures-the-weak-underbelly-of-the-child-care-system/?outputType=amp&__twitter_impression=true
