Child Care Action Council is here to support families in our community! We are at the heart of child care – connecting families to care that meets their needs, while working with child care providers and community members to make quality child care and early education a reality for all children.
Child Care Action Council works with the statewide CCA of WA Family Center where resource and referral counselors provide parents with free child care referrals and other family resources. We also offer professional development training, workshops and consultations for providers.
We also partner with other community organizations to raise awareness of child and family friendly initiatives, offerings and resources. We are committed to helping children grow, families work and our community prosper.
