Grow your childcare program and reduce your stress in 2021!

Operating a childcare business is hard work, but you don’t have to do it alone. Our shared services alliance is designed to help you fill open spots, collect payments faster, streamline your time-consuming business tasks, and increase your bottom line with one year of free business coaching. This program includes access to childcare management software and a dynamic community of childcare business owners just like you. 

We are currently accepting applications from providers who operate home-based childcare programs or small center-based childcare programs serving fewer than 75 children in Crook, Deschutes, Jackson, Jefferson, Josephine, and Multnomah Counties.
