Quality child care matters to everyone: There is no better return on investment

The Minnesota Child Care Association (MCCA) is a statewide organization representing licensed child care centers throughout Minnesota. Our mission is to promote the success of licensed child care centers as an integral part of Minnesota’s early education system. We serve as a voice for professional, high-quality child care that is affordable, accessible, and able to meet the diverse needs of Minnesota families. 

Our membership is varied and growing.  We represent programs small and large, urban and rural, for and not-for-profit, faith-based, language immersion, Montessori, and more.
