Welcome to the Georgia Child Care Association
Georgia’s preeminent child care trade association represents more than 800 private, public and corporate child care centers located across the state. Founded in 1977, GCCA is a non-profit membership organization serving as the voice of Georgia’s licensed child care providers within the halls of government and within the broader community of early learning professionals.
- We advocate for sound public policy that fosters quality, affordable and accessible child care for working parents. We advocate for effective industry regulation that does not burden business with costly, inefficient mandates and that does foster safe environments for children to learn, play and grow.
- We communicate with a broad spectrum of policymakers and regulators whose influence and actions directly impact the early learning and child care community and we strive to offer best-in-class solutions that will prepare Georgia’s children for a bright future. We communicate with parents, the public and the press on timely issues that impact families, our member businesses and the broader communities they serve.
- We educate administrators to ensure a thorough understanding of the state’s licensing requirements and the consequences of non-compliance. We educate owners and directors, offering professional development opportunities as well as resources to support their business processes, to guarantee their financial solvency and to assure the long-term sustainability of their enterprise.
