Editorial Reviews

“Finally, a resource for family child care providers who want to keep the feeling of home in family child care. The author's commitment to family child care environments as warm and inviting spaces—where both children and adults are comfortable and where learning happens all the time—is obvious. The questions posed throughout the book are guaranteed to help providers think about their environment creatively; the photographs are gorgeous and will spark readers' creativity in their own programs. What a wonderful new resource for family child care providers.”
—Barbara Sawyer, Director of Special Projects, National Association for Family Child Care
