About EEDA

The Early Education Development Alliance (EEDA) is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to enhancing the quality of child care provided by the 3,100 licensed child care centers across Georgia. EEDA was created as the philanthropic arm of Georgia Child Care Association (GCCA). GCCA was created in 1977 to serve as THE voice of the licensed child care provider.

GCCA was designed to lobby lawmakers and state regulatory agencies to ensure all facets of the early childhood were taken into consideration with each new legislative and regulatory change. Over the years, it became increasingly clear to the GCCA board members that there were many unmet needs for owners and directors running early childhood education classrooms and child care centers. And thus, EEDA was formed to serve those unmet needs.
