Knowledge Creates Action

The Georgia Child Care Association advocates year round for the Early Education industry. With a unified voice, we educate the needs of our members to Georgia's legislators and regulators. GCCA takes action on behalf of our member owners and operators allowing them to focus on what they do best - positively impacting the future of Georgia's children.

GCCA works to bring important ECE operations issues to light through media presence where possible.  Our members are encouraged to form relationships with various outlets to share their knowledge, expertise, and experiences.  When we work together, Georgia's children and families win!
