Resource Type: Other
Author(s): Early Learning Challenge Technical Assistance Program;
Date Issued: June, 2016
Publisher(s): Early Learning Challenge Technical Assistance Program
Description: This resource was prepared in response to a request for information from a Race to the Top - Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) State about how other States are using a Shared Services strategy to support their child care providers, in particular family child care providers. By sharing common management, professional development, and infrastructure services across programs, providers can reduce costs and create efficiencies. This resource describes how some States have created alliances or systems of shared resources and services that support provider management structures and allow child care providers to focus resources on important programmatic requirements and quality improvements.
