Share Article

Launching in the summer of 2018, the online knowledge hub will support child care and early learning providers participating in Washington’s Early Achievers quality rating and improvement system

CCA For Social Good, a division of CCA Global Partners, proudly announces their partnership with Child Care Aware of Washington, with generous support from the Washington State Department of Children, Youth, and Families. Together, the two organizations will soon deliver a shared resources online knowledge hub that will allow child care providers who participate in Early Achievers to spend less time on administrative work and more time serving young children and their families.

“This ECE shared resources platform provides both family home child care programs and centers with access to the knowledge and business acumen of early childhood experts from across the country, all at the click of a mouse. We are an avid supporter of the growing shared services movement and believe that a focus on the business of child care has a direct connection to increasing the quality of child care across the country,” remarked Denise Sayer, Vice President of CCA For Social Good. “Leveraging the co-operative model of our parent company, CCA Global Partners, we are able to capitalize on the long history of success in assisting businesses in maintaining their own identity, while benefiting from tools, resources and buying power of thousands. We help programs save time and money, and allow professionals to become better business people and return their focus to providing high-quality child care.”

Washington’s online knowledge hub, Washington Child Care Business Edge (Edge), will feature state-specific, customized tools to help providers successfully manage their programs. Some of these resources include quality supports for classrooms, administrative resources in areas including human resources, program administration and training, and customized toolkits to support high-quality child care initiatives and complex programs such as the Child Care Development Block Grant and the federal Child and Adult Care Food Program.

“We are looking forward to the launch of Washington Child Care Business Edge, a great tool to help Washington’s dedicated child care providers increase their success as dedicated small business owners,” said Robin Lester, Chief Executive Officer of Child Care Aware of Washington.

Edge will mark the 29th ECE shared resources platform that CCA For Social Good has developed for child care professionals across the country. For more information about CCA For Social Good and ECE Shared Resources, please contact Erin Holt at (603) 626-2109.
