Welcome to the HLFCA website!

Licensed Family Childcare allows young children to spend their days in a home setting where very close, family type relationships can be formed. Approximately 11,000 providers in Hennepin County welcome children into their homes each day and take pride in preparing them for future success in school and in life. Parents are then able to enjoy peace of mind during their own busy work days.

HLFCA, a non-profit all-volunteer association, was formed in 2006 by several licensed family childcare providers for the purpose of supporting all Hennepin County providers as independent business owners. All board members and volunteers are current providers who spend their days caring for and educating children.

Our goal is to support quality care for children by supporting providers. We do this through:

Because HLFCA is an all-volunteer organization, your time and talents are always appreciated. Whether you have only a few hours to give or are able to make a bigger time commitment, we can use your help. The success of the association is dependent on the participation of the Hennepin County childcare community. For a list of ways you can help, click here.

All childcare providers, community members, and early childhood advocates are welcome to join HLFCA. Only through inclusive collaboration can we best serve the children and families of Hennepin County. We invite you to share our vision and become a member today. click here for the membership form.
