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.

[One of my] teachers stated she was going to have to get a second job after she finished work at the center so she could have more income but because of the monthly funding she wouldn’t have to do that now and could spend the evenings with her family.
