The Texas Center for Child and Family Studies (an affiliate of the Texas Alliance of Child and Family Services) invites you to join us for the 2018 Texas Child Care Administrators Conference


This year’s theme, Children, Youth & Families - the Heart of Texas, reflects our deep commitment to caring for vulnerable Texans and creating the opportunities that allow them to thrive. Our workshops and keynote speakers will provide valuable information on delivering the most innovative and effective, trauma-informed services for children, youth, and families in communities across Texas. And where better to gather together and dive deeply into the the heart of our work than deep in the heart of Texas?

Join friends, colleagues, and leaders in the field as we come together to grow as a community, learn about evolving practice, get up to date on new federal and state policies, and explore opportunities for sharing and collaboration within our world of child welfare.

Each year, we strive to make the Texas Child Care Administrators Conference (TCCAC) better than last, and it has become the largest gathering of its kind in Texas. In 2017, TCCAC connected over 900 private and public child welfare professionals with the latest information and training on effectively delivering quality care to the children and families they serve. It is a great opportunity to network, learn, and it is your one-stop-shop for obtaining 15 hours of continuing education for Licensed Child Care Administrators (LCCA and LCPAA), Social Work (SW), and Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC).

We look forward to seeing you in Austin!
