The Canadian Child Care Federation is a bilingual, non-profit, member-based organization established in 1987. We've grown to include over 20 provincial and territorial affiliate organizations. Our 11,000 members -- early learning and child care practitioners, academics, parents and policy makers -- share our commitment to excellence in early learning and child care through 1) best and promising practice, 2) capacity building and 2) collaborations, networks and partnerships. CCCF continues to create networks with others working to support children's healthy development. CCCF has members working in a variety of child care settings including child care centres, family day homes, pre-schools, nursery schools and after-school programs. Members also teach at Canadian colleges and universities.
