As small business owners Family Child Care Providers are important to the economy of our local communities and our state. We are a major part of the child care system in Maine, but too many in the wider community do not have an real understanding about the early childhood education and care profession. A strong professional association has the opportunity to collaborate both in state and nationally. These collaborations raise the visibility of our profession. Whether it’s through the work of the Professional Learning Committee (PLC) developing trainings and maintaining reliable resources; the Public Policy Committee (PPC) bringing your voice directly to collaboration discussions; or Outreach Committee working to connect providers, it’s all part of FCCAM’s mission to unify, promote and strengthen quality professional family child care in Maine.
