Elevating Voices of Our Family Care Network

March 5, 2019

“All too often in the early childhood profession, we view quality through a one-size-fits-all lens that privileges center-based programs. For more than two decades, the Carole Robertson Center for Learning has supported a network of family child care homes, and it is through observing the dedicated work of our family child care staff that the seeds of this blog were born.
Family child care homes can help bridge the gap in access to high-quality early learning programs in many communities if seen as a unique contributor. It is my hope that this article sparks a conversation about how we can ensure a high-quality early childhood education, no matter the program model.” – Bela Moté, CEO, Carole Robertson Center for learning
