The GCCA is comprised of childcare center directors, staff members, family care providers, students, and other early childhood professionals. Greenville County First Steps, Lifelong Learning/Greenville County Schools and the United Way Child Care Resource and Referral agency work with GCCA to promote community and statewide efforts to enhance the welfare of all children.
Can I attend GCCA board meetings?
Yes! The board meets monthly and all members are invited to attend and provide input. All GCCA board members provide their time, advice and energy free of charge, and all positions are voluntary. Members will receive monthly emails letting them know when and where the board meetings will be held. GCCA is currently developing other tools and programs that will be of great benefit to its members as we work together to provide the very best for the children and families we serve.
