Join a gathering about provider services in Maine

What if care providers organized their own services to support quality of care?

For years child care providers, across Maine, have struggled on their own to provide the best care that could for children and their families with changing services.

We at Maine Shared Services Alliance (MSSA) think that providers in Maine now have an opportunity - Resulting from loss of state-funded services coupled with investments from private foundations - to build a system, from the ground up, to support providers and improve the quality of care.

What is needed is a conversation among providers to make choices for services to create something different for services.

Shared Services for ME

Maine Shared Services Alliance is an innovative, non-regulatory, public-private partnership of stakeholders and early care and education providers.

Our goals are:

  • work together to strengthen the early care and education industry
  • Improve the quality of services provided to children and their families by building on existing initiatives
  • create new infrastructure to give providers access to business supports using economies of scale, while allowing programs to maintain their independent status
