Letter from your President
Greetings MSFCCA Members and Guests!
Welcome to Maryland State Family Child Care Association (MSFCCA), a statewide organization that represents 5,600 family child care providers in Maryland. MSFCCA is a non-profit organization that was established in 1983. Our board members consist of of brilliant volunteer providers who owns and operates their family child care facility day-to-day
The Board’s goal is to be able to reach ALL family child care providers in the state of Maryland. As a home-based family child care business, we are largely divided. Prior to the 2020 pandemic, a great number of family child care providers were not aware of the existence of a state family child care organization and this needs to be addressed. We want to be able to connect and reach all family child care providers in Maryland. To do this, we will support all local county member associations as well as areas where there are no local county member associations by giving an option to join MSFCCA as a direct member.
As MSFCCA President, I would align my goals with MSFCCA to:
Lead and unify family child care providers,
Partner and collaborate with pertinent agencies,
Represent and be the voice of family child care providers
Attend meetings on behalf of family child care providers
Advocate for the family childcare profession
Raise public awareness on the importance of our profession
Support local county associations
Mentor and support family child care providers
In 2020, we will have a new and improved website featuring Provider Search feature, this is an added marketing tool for our members. Free virtual training will be offered to our members until December, and if additional funding is obtained, we will expand this service. We will continue to actively look for training, information, and resources for family child care so that moving forward we can have a stronger profession and provide Quality Learning for all children.
This is our profession; we are proud of it and together we can amplify our voices and strengthen our profession.
