Who we are
The Licensed Child Care Association of Oklahoma (LCCAOK) is a statewide organization representing licensed child care centers throughout the state of Oklahoma. LCCAOK works to educate elected officials and policy makers on the important role that licensed child care businesses play in the economic development of Oklahoma, as well as providing quality early learning opportunities for Oklahoma's youngest citizens and their families.
Oklahoma is seeing a drop in the numbers of operating licensed programs each year that is very concerning for our industry. Each new legislative session brings new proposed legislation that will impact our industry and individual programs. It is important that members stay current on this legislation and take action quickly. Together we are making a difference.
Our members enjoy many benefits that include:
Connection: Our members are connected to a larger group banded together to produce positive results for child care in Oklahoma.
Professional Development Training and Conferences: Conferences provide quality education and networking for early childhood professionals. We offer a significant discount to our members for Conferences and training events. Members are encouraged to help plan the Conference and attend to enhance their professional development.
Public Policy / Advocacy: Our strong advocacy programs are centered on assuring that child care industry voices are being heard. You can keep track of child care issues under consideration by the State Legislature as well as updates from other agencies that deal with child care and early education issues.
Informational Services: LCCAOK keeps members informed and in touch through the association’s web site and email updates of current and emerging issues relevant to the child care industry. We support the work you do each day in your child care business.Read more
