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


  • Thank you so much for this valuable information. I had called several of these places in your larger list before I even spoke to you and I was completely overwhelmed because everyone I spoke to said they had no open spots. When I called you, I did not see a path forward and did not know what else to do. Thank you for taking the time to identify 3 places with openings. I called all three and now have appointments with them to do an in-person tour. It profoundly helped my peace of mind to know there are options for my child.

  • The CCSA [CACFP] is truly a great food program. While I am somewhat new to the program, the staff has been absolutely awesome! They have been patient and flexible while I learn all the rules and regulations. This program has also provided me with numerous resources, such as nutritious recipes, monthly income and trainings that have benefited my family child care home.

  • I wasn’t really prepared for actually searching for child care. I’m a solo parent, so it was a big adjustment to do that, and as soon as he came into the home, we had a clock ticking. We had eight weeks at home with him and then he needed to find somewhere to go during the day. By going to Child Care Services Association, it really did allow me to have one place where I could ask all my questions.
