Through our efforts to express the needs and concerns of child care professionals to the general public, state, and national government, and our peers in the early childhood community, we hope to improve working conditions for providers, thereby increasing the stability and quality of Vermont's child care system.
By joining together as a professional association, we make a statement about our commitment to the involvement in the field of early care and education. We support our members as they strive for recognition as professionals and in furthering their professional goals. VCCPA Mentoring provides one on one mentoring through the CDA/NAFCC/STARs process.
Local networks of child care professionals are linked together through our state-wide association. We bring the voice of child care providers to the larger early education community and work in partnership with other state and national professional organizations.
We serve as an access point for many resources such as: a state-wide newsletter; discounts on supplies; access to information about liability insurance; and contacts for local networks. We continue to leverage benefits for our membership as our association grows.
