QCH Stands with Childcare Providers in Call for Better Child Care System
On Monday, May 9, child care providers, parents and families across the country are hosting A Day Without Child Care: A National Day of Action. Queens Community House and our Queens Childcare Network (QCCN) program support childcare providers and the call for equitable access to affordable child care, as well as better pay and working conditions for providers.
Queens Childcare Network (QCCN) includes over 45 licensed in-home childcare providers throughout Queens. Our network exclusively works with group and family group childcare providers who are required to adhere to stringent guidelines set by the Department of Education (DOE), the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) and the Department of Health (DOH). We help enroll and place eligible children in the NYC EarlyLearn and 3K programs with an affiliated provider within our network. Our Family Workers continue to stay connected with parents after the placement process to ensure services are going well and the provider is adhering to all required levels of care.
QCCN supports registered and licensed in-home childcare providers throughout Queens who serve 500+ children ranging in infancy to 12 years of age. In addition to parent advocacy and enrollment support, QCCN provides training, technical assistance, parent engagement and learning opportunities to our network of childcare providers. We also provide guidance to individuals seeking to become a regulated group or family group childcare provider within NYC.
