GCCA Member Testimonials

"As a private childcare provider, GCCA offers me a convenient and effective means to ensure that my interests are represented. My low annual membership fee funds expert lobbying on my behalf with DECAL and other government agencies. As an industry, we would be lost without GCCA. I sincerely hope all childcare providers take the time to learn how effective this organization is."

-Rich and Peggy Kernan, Kids 'R' Kids Milton

"I joined GCCA over 9 years ago because I did not want to wait for information that involved my business to trickle down from Atlanta. Being a part of GCCA has enabled me to receive pertinent information that affects my industry and how I operate my business. GCCA has been a significant part in allowing my voice to be heard as a small business owner in Southeast Georgia."

-Michelle Smith Lank, Kids World Learning Center

"I attended my first GCCA Owner/Director Conference in 1999 and was immediately attracted to the professional connection and networking. I quickly discovered that GCCA has the LEADERS in the child care industry as its members. Sharing this desire to be the best child care in my area and attract the best teachers, I knew that I had essentially won the lottery with the wealth and knowledge, collaboration and connection that GCCA offers!"

-Audrey Singleton

"GCCA is a phenomenal organization. I first learned about the group at a Quality Care for Children Training.  As a new director, I had been trying to claim a delayed CAPS payment for almost 8 months.  Ms. Reynolds succinctly explained the issue to executives at DECAL & DFCS. Within four days, Ellen Reynolds, Executive Director had the matter resolved. The GCCA membership is inexpensive and has a plethora of perks.  The 2019 Fall Owners' and Directors' Conference can't come soon enough!  I highly recommend that all child care professionals join GCCA. There is strength in numbers!"
