Child Care Aware of Kansas

We provide statewide leadership that builds a diverse, high-quality child care system.


We are a bridge between those who experience the child care system every day – the real-life experts – and the leaders and influencers who aim to address child care challenges.

Working within a network of Child Care Resource & Referral agencies, we also connect caregivers and providers to the information and support they need. 

Our team brings extensive experience and expertise in early care and education. We focus on:

?       Providing essential information and referrals to families looking for child care.

?       Supporting and advocating for hardworking child care providers across our state.

?       Collecting statewide data on child care to inform parents, providers, and decision-makers.

?       Empowering families and providers to share their personal experiences with stakeholders working on this issue. 

?       Partnering with local communities and businesses who are looking to implement new solutions.

Together, we can ensure that all families have equitable and consistent access to high-quality early care and learning opportunities for their young kids — which benefits everyone in Kansas.
