Helping Child Care Providers Operate More Efficiently And Reach Economies Of Scale
The business realities for child care providers are daunting. Our shared services network supports child care providers of all sizes and technology skill-levels with quality programs for children nationwide.
ELV was established in 2009 by the David and Laura Merage Foundation to help children develop strong learning foundations through universal access to high-quality early childhood education. In 2016 we transitioned to an independent public charity and remain committed to improving the quality of early child care by supporting providers.
We recognize that the majority of child care providers are small independent businesses that are passionate about caring for children, but lack the resources to effectively improve the quality of their programs. Therefore, we offer child care providers nationwide much needed back-office support through our licensing-compliant online child care management system, Alliance CORE.
In Colorado, we provide a deeper level of support through access to our Shared Resource Platform, powered by CCA for Social Good and available to all early childhood providers in the state. We also provide direct coaching, support, and funding to providers in our Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership program. This unique partnership brings comprehensive services and support for low-income children and their families to providers in under served areas across the state.
What Our Child Care Providers Have To Say
"When it comes to my business, Early Learning Ventures is like my best friend. Their training and support are amazing. ELV is truly invested in the success of my business and there to help me when I need it. Their child care management system makes running my business easier, saves a ton of time, and ensures we don't miss a single detail."
Aurora Kids Learning Center
"Early Learning Ventures has eliminated licensing and compliance headaches for our school. Everything we need is right there in the system. Our parents love the online enrollment, attendance tracking, and communication tools within ELV. And when we run into any problems, ELV has great customer service to support us. I highly recommend Early Learning Ventures."
Renaissance Montessori Academy
“Working with ELV has saved both our learning centers time and money. Everything we need to efficiently and effectively manage our business is right at our fingertips. We especially love the attendance tracking system and CCCAP integration in the Alliance CORE child care management system. On top of that, the ELV team has been great to work with.“

We’re Stronger Together
Early Learning Ventures is dedicated to expanding access to quality, affordable child care. We focus our efforts on improving the quality of early child care programs – 85% of which are small, independent businesses that lack the infrastructure and resources to invest in quality improvements.
Education is the gateway to life outcomes, and the first five years of life are uniquely important if we want children to succeed in school, grow and thrive. We believe all children deserve access to high-quality early care and education.
