Using Tech to Drive Innovation in Early Care and Education


credit:

Want your child's early care and education (ECE) program to stay on the up-and-up? Try using a digital wallet instead of a paper check, according to the Early Care and Education Association.

The industry is struggling with a shortage of workers and a fragmented funding process, so many states are turning to partnerships with the private sector to fill the gap, eSN reports.

"The inverse is true as wella lack of high-quality, nurturing care or negative learning experiences in the early years can lead to problems for future academic success and educational pursuits," says the group's executive director.

"Administrators want to find the best ways to distribute ECE funds while remaining in compliance, ECE providers and parents are eager to receive the funding, and the government needs to make sure all the boxes are checked," he adds.

"Being responsive to these differing goals and perspectives is critical to enabling quick and easy access to the various ECE funding sources, which can and should be applied to new technological initiatives that will result in long-lasting benefits for all parties."
