Greetings Iowa Child Care Providers,

Early Childhood Iowa released an announcement last week about the Child Care Management System (CCMS) vendors and the Child Care Collaborative of Iowa. The two CCMS vendors selected are brightwheel and Playground.

We are excited to share that Mid-Sioux Opportunity has secured the role of Financial Management Consultants (FMC) for the Child Care Collaborative of Iowa (CCCI) program. We will assist child care programs, across the state, to implement one of the identified CCMS software programs and work towards better business practices.

Programs can receive:

  • Up to 12 months of CCMS subscription fees paid when using either Playground or brightwheel
  • 12 months of financial management coaching through the Child Care Collaborative of Iowa 
  • Apply for up to $1,000 in funding for technology needs

To find more information, you can visit our CCCI website. The application for programs to start the enrollment processes is located there as well. The application and/or questions can be emailed to FMC@midsioux.org.
