• Bennington County Child Care Association is a membership-supported organization of people committed to supporting affordable, quality early childhood care and education service in Bennington County and throughout the nation.

  • BCCCA provides support and educational opportunities for licensed and registered child care providers, recruitment of new providers, and offers a range of consultation, educational, and resource and referral services to parents and businesses throughout the county.

  • BCCCA works in partnership with its membership, community leaders, employers and employees, and parents to achieve its goals.

  • Funding for services is derived from a variety of sources including: state and federal grants, membership dues, fees and contributions, and contracts with private organizations and employers to provide education, technical assistance, and resource and referral.

  • BCCCA is a member of VACCRRA, and is part of a state-wide network of resource and referral agencies.

  • BCCCA is not a licensing service. It does not license, register, endorse, or recommend any particular provider or facility. Parents are responsible for choosing their child's care. Visits to facilities and homes, discussion with prospective providers, and reference checks are strongly recommended. BCCCA can help equip parents by providing information and tools parents can utilize to choose the provider best suited to meet their and their child's unique needs.

It's about doing it right and keeping kids safe ...
