Please join us along with hundreds of family child care providers, advocates, trainers, mentors, and leaders at our 30th National Family Child Care Conference in Norfolk, Virginia from July 15th-18th. Each year, an average of 45 states are represented at the conference. NAFCC anticipates 700 to 800 participants at the 2020 conference.

Family child care providers are predominantly women and are small business owners with the purchasing power for their child care program. The providers who attend our conference are focused on creating the ultimate child care environment, concentrating on safety and child development while in their homes. Attendees are looking for training and networking experiences, as well as new products and services to support their work and business practices.

In addition to providers, hundreds of mentors and advocates from local, state, and federal agencies who work with family child care providers also attend the national conference. These individuals influence thousands of family child care businesses when they return to their cities across the nation.


  • NAFCC is comprised of approximately 3,600 individual members within the family child care community and 14 state affiliate associations.
  • Targeted marketing campaigns promote the conference to these members and to over 16,000 other non-member family child care professionals.
  • Over 5,000 attendee prospects receive direct mailings of registration materials.
  • Over 16,000 combined followers on social media receive regular conference updates along with registration information, exhibit hall promotion, and more.


Exhibit space will include one 8’x10’ draped (8’ back wall/3’ side rails) booth with a 6’ skirted table, two chairs, wastebasket, and an ID sign.
