The Family Child Care Association is a non-profit organization. It is one of the largest, local family-run organizations in Cambridgeshire. It organizes an annual conference which brings together its members for a meeting. During this meeting, each member is presented with an award. This is to say that the members here understand the work and responsibility of being an admin lcam of the FCCA. They get to meet individuals who are considered as experts in their field of interest.
This is where they get to learn about the different challenges, worries, successes and failures they have encountered while in the field of early childhood care. They get to hear how they have succeeded and failed and what has been the cause. They get to learn from the experiences of their peers, thus, making them better administrators. These conferences are very beneficial as they prepare them for the coming year and to further encourage them to pursue admin lcam as a career option.
The Family Child Care Association also organizes the annual Family Child Care Conference, where the various activities and projects of the year are discussed. This conference brings together children from various family child care programs, the local county and the region. Here, all areas are brought closer and learn more about each other. This meeting also serves as the kick-off of the Parent Teacher Program for the FCCA, where each school district will send an administrator to serve as a mentor for one student.
The next meeting of the Family Child Care Association is scheduled for the year 2020. At this meeting, it is proposed that the FCCA develop a formal educational and training plan for its members regarding issues that are to be discussed at the next year’s conference. These include the role of family child care providers, issues regarding their role in early childhood education and how they should interact with the general public, issues regarding the administration of early childhood programs and how they should interact with educators, and other important matters.
The committee is recommending that the FCCA adopt a formal educational and training program for its members, which would encompass information on issues regarding early childhood education. This includes how they should interact with the public, issues regarding the administration of programs and how they should interact with educators. They are also recommending that the FCCA form an administrative committee to undertake these activities, which would consist of five members. These members would be: a county official, an FCCA certified Early Childhood Administrator, a licensed social worker, an FCCA certified Development Specialist, a licensed psychologist, and a Rockville Community College instructor. This is a move that has been strongly opposed by several county departments, which believe that the inclusion of a teacher in the educational group is not beneficial to students’ development.
The FCCA board has until the end of the year to submit its report to the General Federation of County Officials, which will then be reviewed and considered for recommendations for improvement. If the recommendations are not suitable, the next step is for the next county office to consider a review of the recommendations and make its own recommendations to the FCCA board for submission to the General Federation of County Officials. This will ensure that the FCCA can continue to provide oversight of the Family Child Care Association’s mission, work and services, and help to improve early childhood education in Maryland.
