Sparking Connections Phase II – Part I: Lessons Learned and Recommendations

Family, friend, and neighbor care (FFN) is child care offered by extended family members and unrelated adults. Most FFN caregivers are not licensed but often have significant impact on the children for whom they care. Researchers evaluated the performance of select organizations which address the needs of FFN caregivers. The report recommends that such organizations build upon the core foundations of FNN care. These include: the relationship between the caregiver and child, the family support aspect of the care, and the social and learning networks which can be vitally important to FFN caregivers.
