Asociación Profesional de Cuidados Infantiles Domiciliarios (APCID) is a chapter of the Florida Family Care Home Association a statewide non-profit professional organization for regulated family childcare providers, parents, and advocates of high-quality care for children. APCID membership is open to all regulated family childcare providers, parents, and advocates of quality care.
We promote professional growth by hosting monthly in-service training that meet state training requirements, monthly association meetings to discuss important topics in the area of Early Childhood Education, we help with scholarship to attend the quarterly state conference and annual statewide conference, advocacy at the local and state level to improve the quality of family child care, and referral service to the local agencies when necessary. Our trainings and meetings are in English and Spanish.
For parents we help them understand what is a high-quality family childcare program, we welcome all families, we support family’s development, we include the families in activities and programs, and we honor family’s culture, language, and experience in supporting their children’s learning and development.
APCID is committed to mentoring this and the future generations of family childcare providers.
We strongly recommend that all family childcare providers join their local, state, and national family childcare association.
