Shared Services Network

Strengthen Your Business While Focusing on What is Most Important — the Children

By participating in a Shared Service Network, child care providers benefit from services that cost less — and that are often more efficient — than what the programs could do on their own.

The specific mix of services and support offered through a Shared Services Network is based on the needs of the participants and the capacity of the hub entity, which provides the services to a group of child care programs. These entities are often based locally, serving a network of providers in the same community or region.

Child Care Management Software

The foundation of most Shared Service Networks is child care management software, which can help providers communicate with families and staff; set up reminders; handle scheduling and calendars; manage billing, reporting, and enrollment; and much more. The software also helps providers determine where additional support is needed, such as janitorial, maintenance, or administrative services.

We have partnered with the companies below to offer this software to Kansas child care providers at no cost.
