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 childcare centers and family homes. The expenses and time associated with running a childcare business force many providers out of the industry. Research shows easing those burdens helps stabilize the pool of providers, giving families more options.
