This program expands to "all day" care when school is closed for special occasions or teacher conferences. Cost varies and is based on total family income.

FCC programs offer child care that is comparable to the CDC and they also provide accommodating child care arrangements to include nights, weekends, and flexible hourly or even shift care. FCC regulations limit the number of children that maybe cared for at one time. Licensed or affiliated homes can have a total of 6 children between the ages of 2 weeks to 12 years (this includes the provider's on children under the age of 8 years). Out of the 6 children, only two can be under the age of 2 years.
