Family Child Care

What is family child care?

It's a form of child care operated out of an independent educator's home.

There is a small group of mixed ages of children ranging from

4 weeks to 12 years in a smaller, nurturing setting.


The educator is licensed by the MA Department of Early Education and Care.


Family day care placements are available with our wonderful educators throughout the Central and Northern Berkshires, from Pittsfield to Williamstown.

What is great about Family Child Care?

  • A small group setting

  • Siblings can spend the day together

  • More flexibility in meeting an individual child's needs

  • A learning environment filled with toys, books and educational materials to promote hands-on learning 

  • Nutritious meals and snacks prepared by the educator

  • Educators receive support and coaching from a CCB Educational Specialist.
