FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
[Program Name] Helps Launch New Indiana Early Learning Marketplace
New site will transform the way Indiana families find child care
CITY, INDIANA — [Program Name] is one of the Indiana child care programs statewide helping to launch the new Early Learning Marketplace, a site that will transform the way families find child care that fits their needs. Early Learning Marketplace launched this summer and allows families to search for programs within their target geography, filter based on their needs and claim available seats in real-time.
“Quote from program director on why they’re excited to join the Marketplace,” said [program name] director, [Name].
Historically, families have relied on word of mouth and internet searches to locate child care programs, and then spent hours making phone calls to understand each program’s offerings, hours, tuition and availability. Now, with a few clicks of a button, families can use Early Learning Marketplace to search for programs in their area that fit their needs and enroll through the site.
The Early Learning Marketplace is supported by Early Learning Indiana, Lilly Endowment Inc. and the Indiana Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning. All Indiana early childhood educations programs are able to join the Early Learning Marketplace and set up their profiles to begin connecting with families.
The Early Learning Marketplace is transforming the way families find quality, reliable child care that fits their needs. [Program name] is proud to be one of the first Indiana programs to use the Early Learning Marketplace. Share our profile today! [Insert link to your Early Learning Marketplace profile]
