Updates & Upcoming Events

COVID-19 Update

For a list of Child Care Action Council cancellations and postponed events, please go to our Health and Safety Updates page.
Carousel Early Learning Conference
**Canceled for 2020**

The 2020 Carousel Early Learning Conference is canceled in order to comply with CDC recommendations and State of Washington requirements. CCAC leadership has weighed the options in terms of postponing until summer or fall, but have decided that it is most feasible to cancel for 2020. The outlook for summer is rather unpredictable and many of our speakers have conflicting availability. CCAC is hoping to recreate the entire roster of speakers for April, 2021, if the same presenters are available. You will receive a complete refund of your registration fee. If you paid by credit card, the same card will be credited this week. If you paid by cash or check, please contact Nancy Hobson to arrange for your refund. Nancy’s number is (360) 754-0817.
