ChildCareAdvocacy.Org was founded by child care providers with a conviction that, as providers, we do great things for the children and families in our communities. Providing child care entails a great deal of commitment and sacrifice. However, that commitment is often taken advantage of by our society. Child care providers need to unite around solutions that ensure their work and contributions to our world are appropriately valued so that quality people continue to be drawn to, and be rewarded by, this important profession. As we work towards this goal, sharing our experiences unites us and makes us stronger.
Our primary purpose is to empower providers so that, as the ones in the trenches actually doing the work, our concerns and ideas are given more weight in achieving the shared goals of ensuring that every parent can afford the child care they need, that children are in quality, stimulating environments, and that providers make professional wages that can sustain healthy, growing child care businesses. In addition to providers, which includes anyone who works to regularly care for children, we invite child care advocates, government and education leaders, elected officials, parents and anyone else interested in learning more about child care policy from a real world, child care provider perspective to participate in all that CCA.Org offers. We are stronger when we all work together.
