The Child Care Advisory Council (CCAC) was established by legislation passed in 2015. The council's composition and work are based on child care provider needs, areas of concern and ways to increase quality of care. The council meets quarterly and meetings are open to the public.

The mission of the Child Care Advisory Council is to give child care providers and advocates throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky the opportunity to advise the Cabinet on matters that affect the operations, funding, licensing and certification of child care outlined in the Child Care Development Block Grant. The CCAC offers guidance to the Cabinet in developing and promoting methods to improve quality, access, affordability and positive outcomes for all children participating in child care services throughout the state. The CCAC acts as the bridge between providers and the Cabinet to build collaboration to positively impact children.
