Mainspring Early Care Alliance

Mainspring Early Care Alliance works hand-in-hand with early childhood care and education businesses to co-create a system that is provider-centered and relationship-driven. The Mainspring mission is to empower our members, helping them to thrive as businesses and have an impact on the overall well-being of children, families, and the community.

A three-year grant is allowing First Steps Kent to implement the Mainspring Early Care Alliance.

Shared Services for Child Care Providers: A Pilot Project

Shared Services is an innovative approach to strengthen the child care industry by helping providers share costs and deliver services in a more streamlined and efficient way.

A three-year grant will allow First Steps Kent to pilot a Shared Services model to offer more support and back-end services to child care centers and family homes. The expenses and time associated with running a child care business force many providers out of the industry. Research shows easing those burdens helps stabilize the pool of providers, giving families more options.
