“We are excited to see the adoption of WISER throughout the state and the positive impact this can have for both children and early education professionals,” said Denise Sayer, Vice President of CCA For Social Good, innovator of the shared resources platform. “Wisconsin joins thirty-one states currently using this platform to strengthen the business acumen of early childhood professionals with the goal of increasing the quality of care for children across the state.”

The WISER online platform, http://www.WISERECE.org, includes over 1,600 administrative and classroom supports including sample policies and procedures, customizable handbooks, curriculum and classroom tools, health and safety procedure guidance, state regulation information, professional development opportunities and exclusive cost savings programs. The WISER platform also features an exclusive online job board for early education professionals, Wisconsin ECE Jobs, which manages each step of the hiring process from job posting to making the hiring offer. Early childhood professionals have free access to Wisconsin ECE Jobs with their WISER ECE membership.

“With the support of Wisconsin’s Department of Children and Families we are able to bring this invaluable set of tools to WI,” added Ruth Schmidt, Executive Director, Wisconsin Early Childhood. “These resources offer critical support to all early education professionals that will save valuable time and money; increasing professionalism and business acumen in the field, ultimately creating a lasting impact on the lives of our youngest generation.”
