Childcare for Social Justice!

Childcare for Social Justice!
Love working with kids?
Want to support social justice movements in DC?
Have some spare time?
Join The DC Childcare Collective!

The DC Childcare Collective (DCCC),  a small all-volunteer group, is founded on the belief that mothers, women of color, and people from low-income backgrounds are critical leaders of social justice movements.

The DCCC provides safe, empowering and fun childcare as a form of political solidarity with social justice organizations in the DC Metro area in order to make their work more accessible for people with childcare responsibilities.
New Member Orientation:  We try to have 3-4 orientations a year, and will publicize our next orientation date at least 2 months in advance.
Wanna get involved? Visit our Get Involved page and fill out an application.
Right now the DC Childcare Collective, regretfully, does not have the capacity to accept new full-time organizational partners. But we are always interested in discussing other options, and brainstorming together if you have childcare needs, so please feel free to contact us at
We may be able to work with you for a one-time event or conference with 1-3 months advanced notice.

Join the DC Childcare Collective! Spring 2018 orientation set for Saturday, March 3, 2018 1-5 pm.

Welcome to the DC Childcare Collective's website!

The DC Childcare Collective has been providing childcare to parents involved in social justice activism in DC since the summer of 2005. The Collective came together at the suggestion of community organizers working on campaigns involving tenant's rights, privatization of public spaces in DC, and affordable, high quality childcare for all. Since its inception the Collective has been committed to providing fun, safe, empowering and engaging childcare in a systematic fashion while being accountable to the parents, organizations and children we work with.
