Strive (formerly Quality Child Care Coordinating Committee) is a collaborative group of Child Care and Early Years Practitioners who support learning and development in order to enhance quality practice.
Since 2014, Strive has been meeting to discuss and consider how to enhance a collaborative approach to quality child care and professional learning across all early years and child care programs. Our community is interested in a process that supports reflection and sustainable evolution rather than a prescribed method to measure.
Strive is a responsive, community driven organization with an Advisory Committee that is tasked with ensuring the strategies and tactics are put into action. Members of the Advisory Committee represent the diversity and complexity of the Child Care and Early Years sector. Strive leverages administrative support from a backbone organization; Childreach, and takes all organizational initiatives to the membership for endorsement.
We are a community that works collaboratively to promote and build our professional capacity to provide high quality early years, school age, and family support programs and services.
Our purpose is to identify and establish linkages within the Child Care and Early Years community that support and build upon the expertise of Early Years Practitioners and enhance the quality of the services they provide.
Our objectives are to provide continuous professional learning opportunities and resources for early years practitioners, accessible opportunities and resources for practitioners to share as a means to learn through collaborative inquiry, and a mechanism for practitioners to reflect on and deepen their understanding of professional practice.

QCCCC is now strive!
Strive is proud and honored to announce our rebranding. Formerly the Quality Child Care Coordinating Committee, or QCCCC, we launched our new name, logo, and tagline in October 2017.
With this comes not only an exciting change, but also marks this transformative time in the Early Years sector. While our strategic plan has been in place since 2016, we have made gigantic strides towards our outcomes.
Undergoing this rebranding is a major step not only for us, but for all Early Years and Child Care Professionals in the community.
