What is the AVANCE Shared Services Alliance?

AVANCE National is seeking 105 home-based child care providers in Austin, El Paso, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and the Rio Grande Valley to be members of our alliance. The AVANCE Shared Services Alliance is a community of in-home child care educators working together for support services that could include technology support, sourcing goods, systems for tracking and billing, and other backend operation assistance. The Shared Services Alliance offers access to tools and resources, so each provider will be able to increase efficiency and learn best practice processes.

  1. Business support services that can include bulk purchasing, program marketing, and tax support.
  2. Pedagogical services, which can include high-quality training and program planning support through a substitute pool.
  3. Local coaching and technology support to ensure in-home child care educators in each community can access centralized services.
