The Child Care Provider Coalition of Kansas is a not-for-profit organization founded for and by professional family child care providers in Kansas. We are a support group for strength and unity in representing our view point on child care issues. CCPC includes licensed child care providers, statewide organizations, regional and local child care agencies and individuals committed to improving the quality of child care and early childhood education in Kansas. We recognize the beauty of the diversity in family child care and realize that there are many right ways to do things. CCPC of Kansas, Inc. supports regulatory requirements as they protect the health and safety of children.
Our goals are to promote the status of family child care and educate the public and private sectors on the importance of quality child care and the valuable role they play in the early care and education field. We are also here to help individual providers deal with issues that commonly affect family child care providers and celebrate the rewards of working with children and families. We will keep you up to date on issues including legislation, taxes, professional development and quality improvements.
Through membership, support and advocacy, CCPC continues to be on the forefront of the early childhood professional and the families they support.
Thank you for visiting our site. We look forward to serving you.
