Manchester, NH (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
CCA For Social Good, an operating division of CCA Global Partners, and Child Care Aware® of Missouri announce the launch of http://www.ShowMeResource.org, an online platform that delivers a wealth of practical resources for early childhood education directors, family care providers, and teachers. Its goal is clear: to help save time, reduce costs, and improve quality. Most simply, the platform helps its users manage their programs more efficiently.
Sponsored by Child Care Aware® of Missouri, ShowMeResource.org is available to owners and directors of child care centers, preschools, after-school programs, and family child care businesses. Missouri licensed programs, license exempt programs, and unregulated facilities are all welcomed to use the site.
“Prior to ShowMeResource.org, child care directors in Missouri regularly spent a considerable amount of time researching the complexities of a given early childhood education (ECE) topic, scouring the web for a resource, and creating a branded manual or flyer on their own,” stated Dr. L. Carol Scott, CEO of Child Care Aware® of Missouri. “Now, all of that information is housed in one location, and is specific to Missouri State guidelines. Our directors find the program administration guides, handbooks, and policies tremendously valuable and other staff have also praised the teacher and classroom resources, including creative project ideas and event templates. Most importantly, these tools are downloadable templates (all in Microsoft Word or Excel) that can be customized to reflect each organization’s name, branding and content specific to their child care center; thereby, saving valuable time and increasing professionalism and quality in the sector.”
“In keeping with the shared services movement in the ECE field, Missouri is one of twenty one states that sponsor ECE shared resources platforms managed by CCA For Social Good,” explained Denise Sayer, Vice President of CCA For Social Good. “The online knowledge hub we provide allows users to share pragmatic resources, save money because of the collective buying power of ECE centers, and simplify management functions so child care programs can spend less time solving problems and managing administrative details and more of their time where it counts the most, face-to-face with the children.”
The site can be accessed by visiting http://www.ShowMeResource.org. Interested parties in Missouri can fill out a New Member Request form by clicking on “Request a Log in Account” upon visiting the site. Eligibility will be determined by Child Care Aware® of Missouri.
