About us

The Child Life Council (CLC) is a healthy, vibrant professional membership association with 5,000 members, mostly in the US and Canada, with a growing number of members around the world. The core programs of CLC include membership, an Annual Conference, webinars, and a certification program that bestows the credential of Certified Child Life Specialist (CCLS). 

Members of the child life profession work mostly in children's hospitals and in general hospitals with pediatric wings, to help children and their families understand and cope with hospitalization and illness through education and preparation for medical treatment, structured and unstructured play, and other techniques designed to normalize the hospital experience and promote healthy development in children and their families amidst stressful circumstances.

The Child Life Council headquarters is located in Arlington, VA, with 10 staff positions and a current budget of $2.2 million.
