Our History

The Virginia Alliance of Family Child Care Associations is a professional organization established in 1989 to unify family child care providers as professionals in their field.

VAFCCA, also known as The Alliance, is the Virginia link with a unified voice for Family Child Care Providers. Our history dates back to 1977 when Alyce Chesnoe and Karen Chevallier spearheaded what was the beginning of the Northern Virginia Child Care Association (NVCCA). NVCCA's purpose was the pursuit of educating each other through monthly meetings, sharing of best practices, socialization, and encouragement. Over the years, NVCCA's membership grew to 500.

Since 1989, The Alliance has represented, supported, and provided training services and resources to hundreds of Family Child Care Providers and others in the child care industry. VAFCCA addresses legislative issues which affect children, families, and child care workers by advocating for fair and uniform child care regulations and enforcement. The practice of monthly meetings at the local association level continues. In the pursuit of excellence, an Annual Training Conference evolved.
