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.

The TA Specialist’s experience was invaluable for our staff and her approach meshed so well with everyone. I found her very knowledgeable and appreciated that she kept communication open, worked with each teacher individually to meet their needs, and demonstrated respect for all.

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 three 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 supplement relieves the financial burden, which has meant I have more head space, energy and a willingness to devote more of my time and resources to my children. I want to make sure I am being the best teacher they could possibly have.
