The Pennsylvania Child Care Association is a statewide non-profit membership organization. We exist to be strong and effective advocates for high-quality early care and education programs.
Pennsylvania’s early care and education providers are the linchpin to supporting families, businesses, and communities all of whom depend on access to high-quality early learning. High-quality child care is an investment that yields returns for the commonwealth’s children by supporting their development and preparation for school success. In turn, this creates economic returns by increasing workforce participation and productivity. Investing in Pennsylvania’s early care and education providers creates jobs and directly benefits local economies.
