Congratulations to Ms. Jeanette Streeter, licensed family child care provider at the Early Learning Center in Oak Park, for receiving a Gateways Family Child Care Provider (FCCP) Credential Level 2! Jeanette has been a family child care provider for 19 years.
The Family Child Care Credential is offered by Gateways to Opportunity and is recognized by the State of Illinois. The credential award comes through the Illinois Department of Human Services, Bureau of Child Care and Development. It is awarded based on education level, knowledge, skills, and experience of family child care professionals.
The Collaboration’s professional development team helped guide Jeanette through the credential application process.
The Collaboration fosters a professional learning community to promote family child care providers’ engagement in state-supported quality improvement activities. We support the professional growth of child care providers and help parents know the skill level of their children’s caregivers.
More local family child care providers are currently on track to receive Gateways credentials. With the Collaboration’s continued support, Oak Park and River Forest families will benefit from continued improvement in the quality of services available to our youngest children.
