Overview
Quality Care for Children (QCC) is a nonprofit organization with a 30-year history of ensuring Georgia’s infants and young children are nurtured and educated. The organization’s primary focus is on creating excellence in child care and early learning by:

Building Quality: providing training, on-site consultation, and resources to child care providers to increase the overall quality of care they provide.

Ensuring Access: helping parents access affordable, quality care for their children to ensure the best early learning experiences.

Quality Care for Children is a supportive resource for parents and child care providers as they seek to provide quality learning experiences for the over 380,000 children (birth to five years of age) in Georgia. Parents of young children receive information and referrals for and about choosing quality child care and about supporting their children’s early learning and development. Child care programs receive resources, on-site consultation and training to ensure that they are providing a safe learning environment for young children and are successfully preparing young children for school.

In order to continue to address the needs of our infants and young children, it is important to have a clear picture of the current state of child care in our community. Because we assist both parents and child care programs, Quality Care for Children is uniquely positioned to present this picture -- from parents’ child care preferences and challenges, to the of the type, cost, and quality of child care available for our young children.

The following information provides a statistical snapshot of our community’s early care and education opportunities for our young children and families. I hope you will find it useful as we continue to work together to provide our children with the early learning they need to be successful in school and life.
