Family Childcare System

Family Childcare System

The Family Childcare System's main office is located at 2 Merrimac Street in Woburn, Massachusetts. The Family Childcare System places children, aged 2 months through 5 years in the homes of licensed, experienced family childcare providers.  Our family-based childcare system has provider homes available for childcare in communities, extending from Woburn to Marlboro.  Subsidized tuition assistance is available on a sliding scale basis to low and moderate-income families.  Program staff visit each family childcare home at least one time per month and is available at other times for telephone consultation. 

Staff monitor the quality of care provided in each contracted family childcare home, assess each child's developmental progress, and consult with providers on any significant issues.  Social support services are also available to all parents and children, with a special focus on those families at high risk of child abuse and neglect.  The program's primary service area includes:  Acton, Bedford, Boxborough, Burlington, Hudson, Marlborough, Maynard, Stow, Sudbury, Wilmington, Winchester, and Woburn.
