WECA has long been a leader driving bold change in early care and education in Wisconsin with a focus on service to the early education workforce. As the importance of early childhood education and care increases, WECA's advocacy activities have evolved to support early childhood professionals as well as families, businesses and communities.

The WECA Food Program is instrumental for licensed or certified family child care providers to serve nutritionally balanced meals and snacks to children throughout Wisconsin. Supported through funding from the federal Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), it remains the only food program in Wisconsin to serve providers, children and families in all 72 counties and all Tribal nations.

The REWARD Wisconsin Stipend Program provides vital supplemental financial support to early childhood educators who continue to work in an under-compensated and under-resourced field.

T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Wisconsin offers scholarships to early childhood educators to make credit-based education more affordable, improve teacher compensation, and increase early childhood educator retention.
