Wyoming State Learning Corporation Awards CCEI Contract for Early Care Workforce Registry

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), a leading provider of early care and education workforce management systems, is proud to announce it has been awarded the contract for the Early Care and Education Workforce Registry operated by Align on behalf of the State of Wyoming Department of Family Services.

This contract, awarded by Align, is designed to develop and host services for an Early Care and Education (ECE) Workforce Registry. The ECE Workforce Registry will be used by eligible participants in trainings and programs supported by Wyoming STARS and the Wyoming Department of Family Services. CCEI was selected for this project based on their experience in state workforce registry development for the states of Connecticut, New Jersey, California and Arizona.

CCEI’s comprehensive workforce management system, RegistryOne, offers user-specific customized system access to track progress of formal education, eligible training, and work experience. Administrators can manage participant data for verification, management of programs, trainers, scholarships, and more. RegistryOne facilitates reporting based on any database element, and its reports provide data necessary for funding, regulatory, and accrediting agencies, as well as policymakers.

“We’re excited to offer the Wyoming early care workforce a reliable and quality system that will help to track their early childhood workforce, and accelerate program improvements throughout the state,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI.
