Pam Tatum, President and CEO of Quality Care for Children (QCC) and Bobby Cagle, newly appointed Commissioner of Bright From The Start: (DECAL), were featured on the April 18, 2014 episode of Growth Matters, hosted by Michelle Matthews.

QCC is a nonprofit organization that strives to ensure infants and young children are nurtured and educated. QCC also works with the child Care Food Program to provide meals to over 10,000 children each year. Bright from the Start: DECAL, is a state agency responsible for meeting the needs of early childhood education with services in licensing all child care facilities through Georgia’s Pre-K Program. DECAL also oversees the federal Child and Adult Care Food Program and Summer Food Service Program.

“Our facilities are among the highest quality in the state,” said Cagle. “We care for around 400,000 children each day. We believe high quality early childhood education stems from play—the child should not know there’s a lesson plan going on.”

Cagle has served as the Director of Legislative and External Affairs for the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services. He began his career as a social worker.

Tatum became the third CEO in the QCC’s 30-year history, and under her leadership, the QCC has expanded to become one of the premier childcare resource and referral agencies in the country.
