The Child Care Attendance Automation (CCAA) system is the automated attendance that has been established to record the time and attendance (or absence) of children in child care facilities. Parents and guardians confirm that the care was provided to their children, by using a swipe card and either a telephone or a card-reading machine called a Point of Service (POS) device.
Parents and guardians receive a swipe card. Providers receive either a card-reading machine or access to a telephone reporting system. When you use your card on either the provider’s Point of Service (POS) device or the provider’s telephone, the child’s attendance at care is automatically recorded.

Call the number on the card (866-960-6496) for any issues with your card or PIN. If the Point of Service (POS) device doesn’t seem to be working, tell your provider so they can report the problem. If CCAA says that your child isn’t eligible, talk to your CCS Client Service Specialist.
