Early Childhood Education Providers in WV Receive Resource Platform Developed by CCA For Social Good
River Valley Child Development Services, 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 childcare providers in West Virginia.
The site, to be named Early Care Share West Virginia, 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 childcare 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.”
This initiative will provide practical resources to help childcare providers manage their programs more effectively and efficiently. It will do this by achieving the following three goals: saving time, reducing costs, and improving quality.
Suzi Brodof, Executive Director of River Valley Child Development Services, stated, “We’re very pleased to soon offer such a robust tool to early childcare providers in the state of West Virginia. It’s a large step forward in positively impacting the early childhood education system in our state. By utilizing Early Care Share West Virginia, directors will have more time in their day to focus on their mission, instead of getting caught up in creating documents and researching regulations. This both increases job satisfaction and allows the children to receive a higher standard of care and education.”
The site will be accessible by visiting EarlyCareShareWV.org. Eligible users include early childhood education professionals in West Virginia, especially child care professionals and those that may be providing support, training and assistance to those professionals.
Early Care Share West Virginia is a project funded by the Division of Early Care and Education of West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources and administered by River Valley Child Development Services.
