How Child Care Services Association Makes a Difference

As an innovator and incubator for solutions to child care issues, CCSA is proud to be a part of the many successes that are making high-quality child care available to all families and their children. For more than 45 years, CCSA has worked locally, statewide and nationally to fulfill this goal.

Whether through helping low‐income families afford quality child care, child care referrals, salary supplements for our underpaid early childhood educators or educational scholarships to allow the men and women who teach our young children to continue their own education, CCSA is dedicated to ensuring that our children grow up happy, healthy and ready to succeed.

Annual Report


  • The Technical Assistance Program provides an invaluable resource to center directors like me who are relatively isolated in our schools. To have our TA’s fresh eyes, new ideas and attention to detail required by the scales and DCDEE, helped me to maintain a 5-star and renewed our entire staff’s commitment to providing the highest possible quality care for young children.

  • This supplement has increased the morale of the teachers and assisted them in furthering their education. Better morale and education cause the teachers to be better for the children in my program. I am well pleased with the results of this supplement.

  • Appreciating AWARD$ Plus: Doris Lee

    Doris Lee is a Dare County Early Childhood Professional and onsite Administrator of a 4 star licensed facility. She is a strong advocate for Early Childhood and strives every day to be an influential resource to her fellow teachers, the children and their families as she serves in the field. She wants to raise awareness about how child care needs are not being met, including fair compensation for early educators, and the resources that are not available. Doris said, “AWARD$ Plus allows me to be able to take care of my financial obligations along with my living expenses. Our line of work deserves competitive wages for teachers and administrators to feel appreciated and respected as they fight the good fight. Early childhood educators shouldn’t be financially struggling to maintain the basics of everyday life all because they chose to work with children.”
