To promote and nurture early learning communities where families and children thrive.
The Child Care Action Council was founded in 1987 by a group of parents, child care professionals, employers, school & government representatives and other community members concerned about the inadequacies of our community's child care system.
CCAC currently serves parents & providers in Thurston, Grays Harbor, Mason, Kitsap, Jefferson and Clallam counties.
Our mission is to promote and nurture early learning communities where families and children thrive.

Offers a variety of training opportunities for child care professionals.
Helps to create new child care programs to fill unmet needs.
