CCA For Social Good, a division of CCA Global Partners, and The Children’s Cabinet announce the launch of the virtual Nevada Strong Start Child Care Services Center, an online platform focused on innovative solutions to support early childhood educators.
This investment will provide a wealth of solutions that improve quality business practices, reduce costs to address financial challenges and provide services to strengthen the industry’s recruitment and retention needs.
The Virtual CCSC is sponsored by The Children’s Cabinet with funds from the Nevada Division of Welfare and Supportive Services and is available to all child care providers in Nevada. This online platform provides access to over 2,600 innovative and practical tools, manuals, guidelines and guides on important topics such as financial management, workforce support, emergency preparedness, marketing, nutrition, health and safety and more. Users also have access to open positions for their companies on a nationwide job board and popular websites like Indeed and Google Jobs.
“Here at The Children’s Cabinet, we recognize the importance of the field of early childhood education and how it impacts our communities, families and economies across the state. By partnering with CCA for Social Good and delivering child care programs across the state of Nevada, these unique and wonderful tools will prove worth the resources it took to get here,” said Kim Young, Chief Executive Officer, Children’s Cabinet. “We are proud that the Nevada Childcare Network is part of this mission to improve the lives of not only the families they serve, but themselves as educators and leaders.”
“We are very excited to welcome Nevada to our growing network of 34 states sponsoring a custom shared resource knowledge hub. More importantly, we are honored to be part of Nevada’s statewide strategy to strengthen the childcare business. As a result of our collaboration, the Nevada childcare community has instant access to a wealth of editable documents and resources to assist with the day-to-day administrative and operational needs associated with running a quality childcare business,” said Denise Sayer, CCA vice president of social welfare . “As we continue to work closely with The Children’s Cabinet, we understand the importance of a stable, strong childcare community and its direct impact on economic stability within communities. For this reason, our priorities will continue to support operational practices that strengthen financial sustainability, employee hiring, retention and well-being, and other management practices. I am passionate about our work in support of The Children’s Cabinet and look forward to NevadaCCSC.org’s success in supporting childcare leaders, educators, technical support specialists and others who are working to stabilize the quality childcare business.”
