President’s Message


Dear Child Care Providers,

My name is Donna Chartier, the new incoming President of FCCHRI.  Let me start by thanking our Past-President Sharon DiBiasio for all the hard work she has done for FCCHRI.

Let me share some things about myself.  I became a member of FCCHRI 25 years ago and I have served on the Board as the Recording Secretary over the past year.  Throughout my child care career I have served on the Brightstars advisory committee, Rhode Island’s Workforce Knowledge and Competencies committee and presently I am serving on the Rhode Island Early Learning Council.

I am honored to become President of FCCHRI.  I am looking forward to meeting new providers, being a part of this great Board, learning new things and getting to know amazing people.  It is a privilege and honor to be a part of such a positive association.  

FCCHRI continues to grow and change in order to meet the ever changing needs of its members.  Today, FCCHRI is dedicated to inspire children to reach their full potential; through supporting our family child care providers, facilitating networking, raising awareness and encouraging professionalism.



Donna Chartier
