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.

That is why we created an online learning platform with discussion boards, forums, and resources that you can access any day, any time! We will continue to grow our online library of resources in response to the community’s needs.
