MCCA History

  • 1968 to 2015: Remembering Our Past, Celebrating Our Present, Building Our Futuremt zion

    Reflecting the rich diversity of our county, the families of Montgomery Child Care Association represent all income levels and ethnic groups. But we have our roots in President Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty.

    In the 1960's, as a Community Action Project of the War on Poverty, a grassroots group of volunteers began planning child care programs for low income families in Montgomery County, Maryland. In 1966 the group incorporated, and in 1968 we opened our first child care center, at Mt. Zion Church in Olney. Other centers quickly followed, and MCCA now cares for over 1000 children at
    15 locations throughout the county.


Today, almost all MCCA families can afford to pay the full cost of the child care we provide. But many working families in Maryland still cannot afford quality child care, and public funding has not kept pace with their need. So, in addition to caring for children, we continue to advocate for public support of child care.

We believe everyone benefits when all children get the quality care and education they need. Quality child care is good for our children, good for our schools, good for business, and good for our community.
