Our Mission:
To Support Each Other As Child Care Administrators in Providing Quality Programming for Wisconsin’s Families.

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.


Results from the Technical College Survey are in. We are still requesting feedback for a follow-up survey to identify similarities within the Technical College system resulting in poor education, training, and center-ready employees.

Rebecca Droessler, Antonia Stone, Joan Beck, Tricia Peterson, and Renae Henning presented their congressional district’s assemblyman, Representative Mark Born, with the WCCAA Recognition Award on Wednesday, April 26, 2017.

Representative Born and his office staff assisted WCCAA tirelessly in 2016 with issues surrounding the new program from the from the Department of Children and Families, My WI Child Care. Representative Born and his office staff listened to our concerns. They understood our position and the economic impact this change presented us. They knew the key people in Madison we needed to talk to to make change happen. They researched. They made calls. They made connections with people to help them understand our position.

Week of the Young Child

Monday, April 24 - Friday, April 28, 2017

Week of the Young Child is a yearly event spearheaded by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). It is a time to celebrate young children and the uniqueness that goes along with educating our youngest citizens. It's also a GREAT time to advocate for the profession of early care educators.

The WCCAA Advocacy Committee is challenging all members to call their legislators to invite them to see exactly what you do at your center. Invite them in to show them the work you and your staff are doing to educate and care for our children.

Let us know how it goes for you! Take pictures! Share your visit with your local newspaper, Facebook page, or newsletters! WCCAA would love to share your stories on our Facebook page as well!
