This webinar introduced three new resources from the National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance that focus on building the supply of high quality family child care through staffed family child care (FCC) networks.  Supporting the development of staffed FCC networks is a promising strategy that States, Territories, and Tribes can use to engage FCC providers and sustain provider participation in regulatory systems and quality improvement initiatives.  Presenters discussed the role that FCC networks can play in supporting providers, shared key considerations for developing a staffed network, and demonstrated use of a tool designed to estimate the cost of operating a FCC network.
