Nancy Travis Childcare Project

Nancy Travis Childcare Project

Every child deserves the chance to succeed. This basic tenet comprises the very foundation of the Nancy Travis Childcare Project (NTCP). NTCP exists to give every child in Athens a chance to succeed – in school, in work, in life. With fundraising events like Over the Edge, NTCP fills the gap between government-allotted assistance and real-world costs to provide children in our community with the early learning advantages of quality care. We do this on three fronts. In a few words, NTCP

  • provides scholarships for children to attend quality early learning programs through our partner agencies while their parents seek employment, attend GED classes, or return to work;
  • actively promotes childcare centers' efforts to become quality-rated;
  • educates the community about the importance of quality childcare and our need to increase the number of quality-rated programs in Athens Clarke County.

NTCP partners with agencies that focus on improving family life to weave a network of comprehensive services and resources for families so that the hope of a brighter future can become a reality for their children.. The Nancy Travis Childcare Project partners with

  • Athens Area Homeless Shelter,
  • Interfaith Hospitality Network,
  • Prevent Child Abuse Athens, and
  • Children First
  • Salvation Army 

NTCP provides funding through a voucher system to our partner agencies whose clients need quality childcare. (NTCP does not provide direct assistance to individuals to place children into childcare.) By supporting quality childcare and early learning programs, we enable low-income and homeless parents with children to join the work force, train for a job, and attain a General Equivalency Diploma (GED).
NTCP partners with parents.

NTCP educates and advocates. We strive to educate the public about the need for more quality-rated childcare in Athens-Clarke County. We advocate training and professional development for staff members to help childcare programs attain Georgia ‘s Quality Rated status.
