About Child Care Aware® of America

Child Care Aware® of America is a national membership-based nonprofit organization working to advance affordability, accessibility, development and learning of children in child care. Founded in 1987, our primary focus is advocating for child care policies that improve the lives of children and families. We also lead research that advances the child care and early learning field, leverage technology to help families make informed decisions about child care, and provide professional development for child care providers.

About the Leadership Institute

The Child Care Aware® of America Leadership Institute, formerly known as the State Network Council Leadership Institute/Membership Council Leadership Institute, was created to enhance the future of the child care resource and referral community by developing the skills of current and future leaders in the industry.


Reasons To Attend

This October, CCAoA will bring together more than 120 prominent Child Care Resource & Referral state and local leaders from across the nation. These leaders, who are all immersed in the front line work of engaging families, supporting child care professionals and leveraging investments within communities, will come together for stimulating, interactive and transformational dialogue.

 

The CCAoA Leadership Institute framework promises to generate productive debate about trending public policies, encourage networking around promising strategies, and lead to the creation of innovative tools and initiatives to tackle the issues – big and small -- facing the future of child care and early learning.
