Staffed family child care networks: An opportunity to reimagine the Kentucky child care landscape

To help address the systemic challenges underscored by Regional Pilots, the Prichard Committee invited Opportunities Exchange (OppEx) to take a closer look at the issue, identify national best practice, and recommend how Kentucky could revitalize the FCC sector. As the national leader of Shared Services in the ECE sector, OppEx is able to draw on learnings from networks across the U.S. The Prichard Committee was specifically interested in learning how to implement effective Staffed Family Child Care Networks (SFCCNs) in underserved areas of Kentucky to increase access to high-quality infant and toddler care. This report summarizes our findings, frames best practices in SFCCNs, and makes specific recommendations for the State as a whole as well as the Regional Pilots. OppEx also recognizes that provider compensation is key to increasing the supply and quality of FCC. To that end, we created a customized FCC cost model to support recommendations made in this report. (author abstract)
