The Shared Services Landscape in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania AEYC representing the AEYC community with support from the Delaware Valley AEYC and Pittsburgh AEYC  serves nearly 4000 members and is the champion for Early Care and Education communities across the state. We are working collaboratively with OCDEL to support early learning in Pennsylvania. 

A Shared Services Alliance is an organization comprised of multiple center- or home-based early education programs that have agreed to share specific costs and resources, via a collaborative governance structure. The design of each Shared Services Alliance is unique to its participants, but all share the same goal of strengthening business and pedagogical leadership across participating sites by creating structures that enable sharing of staff, information and resources. 

This purpose of this survey is to help us better understand the landscape as well as participation interests in shared services in Pennsylvania. Survey results will be used to inform and create supportive programming for shared services and shared service alliances. All information will remain confidential. 

This survey should take you approximately 5 - 10 minutes to complete. Thank you.
