The Alberta Family Child re Association is an affiliation of contracted family day home agencies in the province. The association was incorporated in January 1989 and has been engaged in promoting the health and well being of children and families ever since. As an affiliate of the nadian Child re Federation the association is involved in national efforts to promote standards and equity in the child re field. Provincially the association seeks to be a voice for families in developing standards that support quality child re. Two recent notable projects are the creation of the Family Child re Consultant’s Resource Guide with its accompanying mentor program and the highly successful Family Child re Professional Conference held annually. Members of the association give of their time on a volunteer basis to further the vital work of advancing the quality of child re in the day home sector.
