What Our Expansion Partners Have To Say
"South Carolina has been thrilled to partner with Early Learning Ventures since our earliest days. They have graciously welcomed our organization, Palmetto Shared Services Alliance to visit, learn, and take ideas back to implement for our providers. As newcomers to the Shared Services arena, being able to reach out to such an established organization has been invaluable to us. We have recently partnered with ELV to bring CORE to our state as well as a potential Early Head Start partnership. ELV is the epitome of what a Shared Services network should be and we are grateful for their friendship and support!"
