Increasing capacity and enhancing quality in Cuyahoga County's family child care system

The Family Child Care Homes component of the Early Childhood Initiative was intended to increase the number of certified family child care homes in Cuyahoga County by 1,025 and improve the quality of care in those homes. Starting Point, the County's Child Care Resource and Referral Agency, and its regional partners recruited, trained, and delivered technical assistance to family child care providers. The evaluation sought to determine if the component met its capacity building goal and whether the quality of child care had improved over time as a result of home-based technical support. Additionally, the evaluation examined the nature of the work of technical assistance providers, the technical assistance provided to a small sample of providers, and the decisions made by parents when choosing family child care.
