Early Childhood Education Providers in MO Receive Resource Platform
Child Care Aware® of Missouri and CCA For Social Good, a division of CCA Global Partners, have entered into an agreement to develop an Early Childhood Education (ECE) Shared Resources online platform for child care programs in Missouri. This initiative will provide practical resources to help child care professionals manage their programs more effectively and efficiently. It will do this by achieving the following three goals: saving time, reducing costs, and improving quality.
The site, to be named Show Me Child Care Resources, is one of nineteen shared resources platforms that CCA For Social Good will have launched by the end of 2014.
“CCA For Social Good is a strong believer in the power of the shared services movement exhibited lately by members of the ECE community. By managing shared resource platforms in multiple states, and having the backing of CCA Global Partners’ co-operative business model, CCA For Social Good is able to afford child care centers the ability to maintain their identity, while also taking advantage of the buying power of thousands, “ explains Denise Sayer, Vice President of CCA For Social Good. “Additionally, users will benefit from business resources specific to the ECE field, all of which have been vetted by professionals in the childcare field.”
Dr. L. Carol Scott, CEO of Child Care Aware of Missouri, stated, “We’re very pleased to soon offer such a robust tool to early child care programs in the state of Missouri. It’s a large step forward in positively affecting the early childhood education system in our state. By utilizing Show Me Child Care Resources, directors will have more time to focus on their mission, instead of getting caught up in creating documents and researching regulations. This kind of mission focus increases job satisfaction and allows the children to receive a higher standard of care and education.”
The site will be accessible by visiting ShowMeResource.org. Eligible users include owners and directors of child care centers, preschools, and after-school programs, as well as owners of family child care businesses. Missouri licensed programs, license exempt programs, and unregulated facilities are all welcome to use the site.
