Child Care Automated Attendance System

The Child Care Automated Attendance System (CCAA) is an attendance reporting program implemented by the Texas Workforce Commission for the child care program across Texas.

As a provider, you are responsible for providing and managing the equipment needed for parents to record their child's attendance daily. 

Child Care Providers may NOT:

  • Possess, or have attendance cards on the premises without the parent being present;
  • Accept or use an attendance card or PIN of a parent or secondary cardholder; or

  • Perform the attendance reporting function on behalf of a parent
