All My Children’s reputation for excellent service in our SEIT and related services department is renowned. All My Children’s disabilities department is dedicated to assisting all parents with their child’s individual needs. We maintain continual contact with the parents for the duration of their enrollment within the AMC program and beyond. We are fully committed to our goal of ensuring that every child’s individual educational requirements are being addressed.
All My Children Day Care is not merely a child care provider, or even just a school. It is a community. Our Family Services Department coordinates and communicates with parents on a regular basis, promoting a sense of belonging, community, parental involvement, and a dedicated support network.
Every AMC family has a family worker who liaises between the parents and school; family workers mentor, counsel, advise, and provide a listening ear or valuable resources for the parents.
Family Workers assist parents in setting personal goals, family goals, and professional goals. They facilitate the process for eligible parents to obtain government aid such as food or housing and share the myriads of helpful resources to be found within their neighborhoods.
Every All My Children parent knows, if s/he has a concern, needs a phone number, a doctor, or even a book recommendation, a phone call to the family worker will yield results.
Family Child Care (FCC) Department
The Family Child Care (FCC) department at All My Children (AMC) is a community-based network that provides services for both parents of the children in the AMC network and to participating child care providers that are licensed by New York’s Administration for Children’s Services. As part of AMC’s mission, children, families, and providers are supported by a variety of services offered by the FCC staff, including placement of children within the network, timely payments to the providers, monitoring off-site providers through regularly scheduled inspections, and serving healthy and nutritious meals to the children participating in the “CAC” Food Program.
The FCC department at AMC is dedicated to providing quality care to the children in our network by adhering to stringent health, safety, and educational requirements under the ACS regulations. As such, providers in the AMC network undergo an additional application, interview, and screening process in order to be considered for involvement with our agency. In addition, the FCC department offers frequent training sessions to providers in the AMC network on behavior management techniques, creative curriculum ideas, as well as other subjects related to their work with children.
Children placed with providers who participate in the Food Program can receive up to two meals and a snack that meet USDA nutritional standards. These children present with higher intakes of key nutrients and fewer servings of fats and sweets than children in non-participating care. As the food program is age-based, children are provided with a meal that is healthy and nutritiously age-appropriate. Inspectors are regularly scheduled to make announced and unannounced visits to ensure that participating providers are serving healthy and nutritious foods and following protocol. Additionally, providers that participate in the CAC Food Program receive monthly reimbursements for the costs of providing healthy and nutritious food to the children in the AMC network.
