CCA For Social Good, a division of CCA Global Partners, and the United Way of Massachusetts Bay have entered into a partnership to develop an Early Childhood Education (ECE) Shared Resources online knowledge hub containing over 1,600 tools and resources that will have a noticeable, positive impact on the work of early education providers throughout Massachusetts.
“The customization of the ECE Shared Resources online knowledge hub for Massachusetts’ early education providers aligns with United Way’s commitment to adopting innovative solutions that have positive and lasting effects on youth in Massachusetts,” noted Sunindiya Bhalla, Senior Director, Community Impact at the United Way. “This partnership will be a great launching pad for continued development of programs that support the availability of quality early education across the state.”
The over 1,600 tools available on the platform include administrative supports; forms, policies and procedures; professional development resources; human resource management expertise; health and safety guidance; pre-negotiated savings programs and much more - all tools created to directly support a focus on increasing quality of care in early education.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with the United Way of Massachusetts Bay to customize this online toolkit for providers across their state,” said Denise Sayer, Vice President of CCA For Social Good, the innovator of the resource platform. “ECE Shared Resources supports operational and business efficiencies, giving ECE providers the necessary bandwidth to meet the increasing demands in the industry and an opportunity to save essential time and money that can be reinvested in raising the quality of child care. We are excited to see the impact this will have in Massachusetts.”
Massachusetts joins twenty-six other states that have adopted this platform to strengthen the work of child care directors, teachers and technical assistance staff in support of positive outcomes for children.
