“With the support of my business coach, I was able to set up automatic billing with parents of my program, so I now get paid in full and on time. I also decreased the amount of time a spot sat empty in my program, which helped me earn more without having to raise prices. My coach helped me to put better policies in place for my child care program and get organized. I now have more time to focus on my own family.”

“I love how responsive and supportive the Oregon Child Care Alliance staff and Wonderschool staff have been! The Wonderschool finance tracking is so helpful and easy to use. My business coach is passionate and ready to support, which is great! Thank you!”

WHO WE ARE
Our mission is to provide services that not only meet provider needs but honor provider voices. Our Alliance was founded by Neighborhood House and developed through collaboration with a diverse community of providers and child care organizations around the state and we continue to work closely with providers and community stakeholders in the development of this program.
Supporting Local Communities
We invite you to join a group of like-minded educators and child care workers who will walk with you hand in hand. Together, we ensure providers have the necessary support to do their best as a business owner, which in turn helps strengthen local communities.
By joining the OCCA, you will receive help setting goals for your business, whether it is plans to expand, increase your enrollment, set a budget, hire staff or set savings goals.
