Many childcare providers are small businesses and have the same operating needs as other organizations. In addition to meeting quality standards for education and care, these businesses must focus their attention on recruiting and enrolling children, bookkeeping, building maintenance, human resources, and other business operations. But for reasons ranging from expense to expertise, it is often a struggle to find the resources to put toward these basic functions. These operating challenges don’t just impact childcare providers; they also impact children and families and reduce the ability of providers to offer high-quality care. This case study looks at the different ways businesses can contribute to Shared Services Alliances, taking the burden off these providers and enabling them to do what they do best—provide high-quality care.
