NAFCC Is Making Changes

Recently I've noticed some changes the National Association for Family Child Care is making and I wanted to make sure you all knew about them as well!

  1. New Website-NAFCC has enhanced their website and it looks great! 
  2. Family Child Care In The News Email - an email in which you get a break down by state of what is in the news in family child care
  3. Public Policy Manager - Bryce is on board to keep up up to date and advocate for family child care providers regarding policy.
  4. Organized a Fundraiser - Walk the Talk for Quality - a walk-a-thon type fundraiser to get you to 1) conference, 2) accredited, or 3) membership to NAFCC
  5. YouTube - Regularly posting videos on Youtube

And everything looks really nice to boot.  Check out NAFCC as they continue to be THE organization for family child care and strive to be even better for you, for us, for the children.  Congrats on all of the great work, NAFCC!  We are excited to see more.

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building
