Partnerships & Programs
PACCA continually seeks partnerships, programs, connections, and opportunities to make our members more successful, address the needs of the early childhood workforce, and increase members’ ability to meet the needs of Pennsylvania’s children and their families for high-quality early care and education.
PACCA partners with Exchange Press to provide members with a FREE subscription to Exchange magazine and other discounts on CCIE materials and other resources.
PACCA's newest partnership is with FocusHRO. FocusHRO is a human resource outsourcing firm dedicated to helping small to mid-sized companies. The model and design are unique, delivering resources for those who want to focus on operating their day-to-day business without the headache from the rest.
Nature Explore is a national nonprofit program of Dimensions Educational Research Foundation, which works collaboratively with a network of organizations throughout the nation. Our goal is to help nature become an integral, joyful part of children’s daily learning. Nature Explore provides research-based workshops, design consultations and resources created to support programs as they continue to connect children and families to the wonders of nature.
PACCA member programs receive a discounted rate on their annual subscription agreement for Teaching Strategies GOLD® online assessment system of $9.95 per child portfolio.
Since 2008, PACCA has collaborated with the Pennsylvania Head Start Association and the Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning to host the Pennsylvania Early Childhood Education Summit. Each year the ECE Summit has brought together nearly 1,400 professionals, parents, and community members from across Pennsylvania to this 3-day event held annually in State College, PA.
