There's an easier way to manage your program.

Imagine a world where you spend your days as a Director or Owner focused on what you love. Not on marketing,  hiring, or accounting, but on providing quality care and education to children, investing time to continually develop your amazing staff, and improving your curriculum.
Because the administrative work is handled by your trusted back office team whose focus is on ensuring your business is operationally efficient, fully staffed, and financially stable.

Welcome to the Early Learning Shared Service Alliance. We want you to join us. FIRST YEAR IS FREE!


The Benefits of Joining ELSSA

Increase enrollment and revenues

We’ll help you manage marketing and increase your online presence, share your availability, manage and help grow your waitlist to reduce future revenue gaps, and get families in the door quickly.

Automate back-office administrative work

Collect tuition on time, reduce paperwork management, improve financial record-keeping and reporting, provide affordable employee benefits, and more with the help of technology and a centralized back-office team.

Increase the quality of your program

Have more time and resources to focus on increasing quality, improving staff development and more. You’ll also receive free business coaching to help you strengthen your program and set it up for long-term success.

Growing your business requires a little bit of change.

But with ELSSA, we make that change as pain-free as possible, and are here to support you every step of the way. All we ask is that you:

Have continuous, open dialogue with your new coach.

The more open you are, the more we can support!

Commit to using childcare management software.

These tools will help automate many tedious and manual tasks. You’ll receive ongoing technical support, if needed.

Engage and connect online with your professional network.

This is a group that you can lean on for the good and the bad.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is this program?

The Early Learning Shared Services Alliance is a program for Central Florida childcare programs on a mission to help you and your center or family home increase enrollment, reduce your administrative task list, and grow your business through the help of free tools, back-office support, and coaching. If accepted, you’ll be a part of a professional network of other Owners and Directors who run financially stable and operationally efficient programs, and spend the majority of their time focused on improving quality and growing their business.

How long will this program last?

ELSSA is a long-term partner. You can be a part of this program as long as you’d like, but we ask that you commit to at least 1 year if accepted.

What do I have to pay?

Nothing. ELSSA is a free program for the first year. Once the first network has increased revenues and financial stability, we plan implement a small monthly fee for continued success.

You must:

  • Be located in Orange, Osceola or Brevard County.
  • Be a licensed child care center or family child care home.
  • Have been in business for at least 12 months.
  • Have access to a computer or mobile device.
  • Agree to participate in the program for at least a year.

Do we have to use the technology provided to participate?

Yes, you must commit to using the software during the first year. We will provide full support with onboarding and implementation.

How often will we meet?
