WCCAA is active at local, regional, state, and national levels. WCCAA is represented on many advisory committees and boards and provides quality training by hosting a statewide conference each year. As child care administrators, your needs are our goals.
EBT Card Victory
A Victory for Quality Child Care: It is always dangerous to declare victory in the government relations world because you never know what might happen next and you need to live by the "devil in the details" mantra.
That being said, advocates for quality child care -- led by the Wisconsin Child Care Administrators Association and WCCAA President Beverly Anderson -- scored a victory this week when the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF) released its latest plans for its Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) program, and, contrary to earlier plans, the YoungStar Quality Bonus will not be placed on the cards, at least during the transition phase of the program.
WCCAA and other groups were told this was a lost cause, but we persevered. We kept making the case for why sending the bonuses to providers benefits the children and families who need quality early education and care. We look forward to continuing to work with key policymakers to ensure a great child care system for Wisconsin for the future.
