For Parents

Children learn through the Home-Based Childcare Program

Helping families find childcare and early childhood education options that fit their needs!

We match parents and licensed childcare providers to place children in nurturing home-based daycare businesses, where they can develop to their full potential and prepare for a smooth transition to Head Start or pre-K programs.

Through its Home-Based Childcare Program (HBCC), WHEDco works with families to help them explore options, determine their eligibility for subsidies, and provide orientation on how to select the right caregiver for their needs.

We rely on a strong network of 400+ licensed & regulated childcare providers, as well as WHEDco-affiliated home-based childcare providers within the EarlyLearn NYC Program. For parents selecting their own caregivers, WHEDco serves as New York City’s official enrollment agency for license-exempt caregivers. At our Hub Locations, we process enrollment applications to help determine the eligibility of unlicensed caregivers.

In addition to providing orientation services to families in order to help them select the childcare provider that meets their needs, WHEDco offers support services to licensed, registered, and legally-exempt service providers through its Home-Based Childcare Training Program.
