The Child Care Advocacy Podcast

Education Podcasts >

ChildCareAdvocacy.Org was founded by child care providers with a conviction that, as providers, we do great things for the children and families in our communities. We need a forum to talk about child care policy and solutions from the child care provider's perspective. It's a critical voice that is often missing from the national debate. While our main focus is connecting empowering child care providers everywhere, we invite child care advocates, government and education leaders, elected officials, parents and anyone else interested in learning more about child care policy from a real world, child care provider perspective to participate in all that CCA.Org offers. We are stronger when we all work together.
