Shared Learning Opportunity
Learning and working together through Shared Services

What is Shared Services? Shared Services is a strategy for building strong systems among early care and education providers. Providers can access services, professional development and business assistance through streamline, efficient and cost effective methods.

This opportunity will offer:
