When I started out my Family Child Care Home, people were talking a lot about quality child care.  I asked myself, what is quality child care?  By obtaining a scholarship through T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® INDIANA project at the Indiana Association for the Education of Young Children and college classes, I learned what quality care and education is and how to implement it.  I feel with the education I’ve gotten, I can help children be more productive citizens in the future.
