FACCM is a nonprofit, professional organization of child care providers dedicated to ensuring the highest quality in the early learning industry through advocacy, education, and accreditation.
The Florida Association for Child Care Management strives to be the leader in the early learning industry by providing professional development tools, equipping teachers and directors with information to better manage their programs, and top quality advocacy at all levels of government.
FACCM is unique in our approach to fulfilling our mission statement—to be the leader in building and protecting a vibrant, professional child care industry. Our board is made up of owners, operators, and child advocates that tirelessly and generously lend their time, talent, and resources for the betterment of all child care facilities. Our organization represents every segment of the child care industry to ensure their voice is heard and valued during the regulatory decision-making process that impacts our industry. Our goal is to enhance the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the people who lead the child care industry by providing membership services with tangible benefits. FACCM continues to expand and evolve each year in order to continue to set forth the best practices for teachers and child care centers to be successful.
As a member of FACCM, you will be a part of community of industry stakeholders working together, as a unified voice, for the children we serve, to educate our elected officials on the vital role child care centers play in rebuilding our economic prosperity. You will receive training, business support, products to help your center succeed, and the opportunity to demonstrate and document your program’s quality performance through accreditation. You do not have to be accredited by APPLE to receive all of these benefits. Any teacher, director, child care facility or early learning advocate can receive the benefits by becoming a FACCM member.
We have assembled an impressive selection of membership benefits designed to save you time and money while growing your business. We pride ourselves on being the only early childhood that truly represents the interests and the needs of the provider. We keep this in mind as we carefully choose benefits for our members.
Additionally, through our CORE Program (Curriculum Options for Required Education) we provide CEU courses and workshops to assist with your continuing education requirements. Events are advertised through our emails and on the front page of our website. FACCM has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
