It’s that time of year again, please renew today! Active Membership is open to any childcare centers that are licensed by the Louisiana Department of Education. Once your childcare center joins CCAL, the staff members are eligible to join CCAL at the reduced rate of $30/year. This qualifies them for the professional membership requirement that Pathways sets forth for QRS. You can locate an individual membership application on the CCAL website at www.childcarelouisiana.org.
