Vermont Child Care Industry and Careers Council

What is the role of the VT Child Care Industry and Careers Council (VCCICC)?

The VT Child Care Apprenticeship Program (VCCAP) is managed in collaboration with the VT Department of Labor, through the efforts of VCCICC. As a statewide, not-for-profit organization, VCCICC blends state and federal funding, private foundation and community grants, membership dues and private donations to benefit apprenticeship. VCCICC funds will contribute to the T.E.A.C.H. Apprenticeship scholarship cost. VCCICC conducts outreach and orientation, provides materials for apprentice/mentor teams, maintains files, collects monthly documentation from apprentices and mentors, and offers support to all participants throughout the course of the apprenticeship program.

We believe…

 All children and families deserve high quality child care.

Child care teachers deserve affordable and accessible opportunities to learn.

Child care teachers improve their practice through education and training.

The Registered Child Care Apprenticeship Program provides the best of both education and on-the-job training.

Funding invested in Early Childhood Education will provide a strong future for Vermont.
