Advocacy and Public Policy

Grassroots-inspired and research-based, we advocate for better child care.

Through Capitol Connection we advocate for projects that increase the quality and availability of child care, undertake research on the child care landscape, and advocate for child care policies that improve the lives of children and families.

Military Programs

They protect our country and we support their children

The men and women of our armed forces selflessly serve our country and their families are often challenged by the uncertainty of deployments and relocation. Child Care Aware® of America is dedicated to helping military families who need stability in child care to provide peace of mind.

Professional Development

Supporting today’s Child Care Workforce

Child Care Aware® of America Trainings are delivered through a real-time, instructor-led webinar platform or through an online, self-paced platform. We offer instruction in areas including CCR&R Professional Development, Business Skills, Consumer Education and Referral and much, much more.
