Partnership with Wonderschool enables providers to better ensure quality early care and learning for local children and families
DALLAS, Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ChildCareGroup, the oldest and largest early childhood education provider in North Texas, today announced a pilot project to deliver a free, all-in-one comprehensive business management tool to five local childcare providers.
The support is made possible by a partnership with Wonderschool, an innovative online platform that connects families to a diverse set of childcare options and supports the providers.
Wonderschool's technology system will include digital and marketing support, enabling childcare centers to create websites, promote their programs in the platform's marketplace, manage enrollment and tuition, schedule events and tours, record business activities and expenses, contact prospective and current families, and access data to gain insights. It also allows the centers to create custom parent handbooks. Additionally, the platform has an app to support family/provider communication that includes photo and activity sharing, messaging, information about the child's day, and program updates.
In addition to access to the platform, providers will receive a full onboarding and access to resources, like virtual and recorded trainings and quality assessment tools. Providers will also receive valuable information about marketing, social media management, and best practices for sustaining a business and engaging with children and families.
"We are excited to see how the Wonderschool tool will assist in making the business for our providers more efficient," said Racquel Washington, early learning quality initiatives manager at ChildCareGroup.
Marcella Atkinson, family child care director at Impressionable Kids and one of the pilot participants, agreed. "What excites me most about this program is that all I need on a day-to-day basis is right at my fingertips. It creates a one-stop shop for me and helps eliminate the many stressors associated with a childcare business."
ChildCareGroup is dedicated to strengthening the childcare industry by providing critical tools to providers and educators. Tools like Wonderschool help increase availability, affordability, and accessibility of quality childcare programs.
