How We Help Parents

How We Help Providers

  • Parents can use our online directory to find child care in your area! All providers in our Association are licensed.
  • EWFCCA encourages parents to ask if their provider is a member of this professional organization and can assist parents with basic questions regarding the business of family child care, Minimum Licensing Requirements, ADA Laws, Working Connections Child Care and other parent/community resources. For greater needs, EWFCCA will refer parents to Family Care Resources, The Division of Child Care and Early Learning, their local DSHS Office or the community resource most closely associated with their need.

 

  • EWFCCA offers affordable and pertinent STARS approved training and workshops throughout the year as well as an annual "Reach For The STARS" Conference the first or second Saturday of March.
  • EWFCCA's highly respected newsletter keeps providers informed and connected and is free with each membership. 
  • An online directory is offered for licensed providers to assist parents in finding quality day care.
  • EWFCCA is strongly connected to the local community and other professional organizations and has taken an active roll in local and state issues, representing Family Child Care on many statewide policy making committees and groups. (STARS Stakeholders, The Child Care Coordinating Committee and Subsidy Sub-Committee, Spokane Regional Child Care Initiative, Stand For Children, Early Child Care Collaborative, The Spokane Alliance) 
  • EWFCCA offers resources and assistance to anyone with questions or concerns that relate to the child care field.
