This year marks our 50th anniversary, and we are excited to celebrate all that CCSA has accomplished in partnership with employees, families, child care educators, community partners, and friends. CCSA started as two independent organizations in 1974, to meet community child care needs. Today, we’re a leader and advocate in child care services on the local, state and national level.

We invite you to be part of a robust year-long celebration that will engage thousands of individuals in the community from our past, present, and future – children and families, child care educators, former staff, and community partners – through special events, programs, and public acts of good.

Our History

Throughout the year, we’ll add to our timeline and celebrate the core of our work—reflecting on our past milestones, people and moments that have brought us to our 50th anniversary, as we continue to look forward to growth over the next 50 years.

CCSA’s 50th Anniversary Gala Recap

On Saturday, May 18, Child Care Services Association (CCSA) hosted a 50th Anniversary Gala to celebrate 50 years of transformative work and impact in the early care and education field. This celebration honored our past as we are forging our future, which includes a new name and logo for our organization, revealed by our president, Dr. Kristi Snuggs, at the Gala!

To celebrate our 50 years, we have launched a fundraising campaign to raise $50,000 in our 50th year and welcome donors to help us sustain our vital work!
