Early Learning Ventures Alliances

Commitment by

Early Learning Ventures

In 2013, Early Learning Ventures, along with its partners, committed to expanding quality child care by expanding and establishing statewide networks of Early Learning Ventures (ELV) Alliances. Each ELV Alliance includes approximately 100 early child care and education small businesses that collectively share technology and other support services that strengthen financial and operational performance, allowing more time and money to be dedicated to delivering high quality early childcare and education. This market-based approach helps early child care centers improve economies of scale and promote business efficiencies that ultimately increase access to affordable, high quality early care and education for vulnerable children. In the first two years of expansion, the ELV Alliance will impact 980 licensed child care providers and improve the quality of care and education for over 63,000 children from birth to age five in Colorado and Maryland.
