Vermont Child Care Industry and Careers Council

Important Announcement

Dear Early Childhood Community,

For over twenty years, the Vermont Child Care Industry and Careers Council (VCCICC) has worked to support the professional development of early childhood educators and partnered with other organizations to build quality and sustain growth of the child care industry throughout Vermont.

As you may be aware, as of July 1, 2020, VCCICC will no longer be administering the Vermont Child Care Apprenticeship Program. The Child Development Division chose the The Vermont Association for the Education of Young Children (VTAEYC) as the grant recipient for the administration of the Vermont Child Care Apprenticeship Program.

VTAEYC, who also administers the T.E.A.C.H. Scholarship Project, will assume all responsibility and operations for the Apprenticeship Program beginning July 1st. Rest assured, those of you who are currently participating in apprenticeship will be able to continue. We are working to make this transition as smooth as possible. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

We will very much miss working with all of you. Thank for your support of VCCICC, and for the vital work you do with children and families each day.

With sincere appreciation,
VCCICC Staff & Board of Directors
