    Family child care is one of the most vulnerable – and currently shrinking – segments of the child care industry. FCCPs face an untenable workload and often receive poverty wages.

    What Providers Say About CoRise

    “Child care providers, like myself, sometimes feel stressed and overwhelmed because of the extra paperwork. We must make a choice between being behind on daily paperwork or spending less time doing the thing that we all love the most, which is interacting with the children in our program.”
