Staffed Family Child Care (FCC) in Oklahoma plays a vital role in the state’s Early Childhood Care Education (ECCE) mixed delivery system and economy. In Oklahoma, there are more licensed home-based child care programs than there are center-based programs. These home-based child care programs provide more than 13,000 slots for child care across the state. As a result, these FCC providers help to drive the Oklahoma economy forward by giving working parents more options than most center-based programs can provide. Many working parents choose FCC homes due to the flexible operating hours, convenient locations, the opportunity for siblings to be cared for together, lower costs, and the home-like setting that can be more compatible with the cultural or language background of families.
