The NY Early Learning Alliance is a free program set to help you and your center or family home increase enrollment, reduce your administrative task list, and grow your business through the help of free tools and coaching. If accepted, you’ll be a part of a professional cohort of other Business Owners who you can lean on for support in the good and bad times, and you’ll receive an Early Learnings support team to provide ongoing technology and business coaching.
We ask that you commit to at least 1 year with the NY Early Learning Alliance. You may continue with the professional network and receive ongoing coaching, however, you will need to pay for the software after 1 year of use.
Absolutely nothing. If you choose to continue with the software after 1 year, you’ll pay a small fee (starting at $25/month, no more than $150/month) but the software will save you more money monthly than you pay.
Not at all. You’ll have a dedicated support team to help you set up your system and then provide ongoing training. You should see the benefits of your technology within a few days.
Yes, you must commit to using the software during the first year.
We believe that you’ll spend less than 10 hours a month on this program, including technology training, and time with your network and coaches. Our goal is to save you time, not to take up too much.
Yes! We plan to grow this program across the State and offer many more chances to be a part of this network. We do not have a time frame on this as yet, as it will require additional funding.
