Shared services means shared success.

By building a network of support, private childcare centers no longer have to carry the burden of everything themselves and can have a full team dedicated to their success.

We know that running high quality child care is complex and takes a village. So, we are here to do our part in raising the next generation. We believe that supporting childcare professionals with a comprehensive system is the best way to support children and families.

Business Support
We provide support in business development, back office advising and management, human resources consulting, facility repairs, marketing to boost enrollment, and I.T. consulting. Outsource tasks to our team of experts and advisors to focus more on your business.
Classroom Resources
Programs get free access to a high quality evidence based curriculum and also receive one on one coaching on best practices for teaching and using the curriculum. In addition, teachers receive training on an array of assessments and screeners to be able to use data in the classroom and understand student development. NEXT Memphis also provides free CDA certification for any teacher who is interested.
Community Services
We help families in every area of life, whether it is meeting exciting personal goals like buying your first home, or navigating a crisis such as homelessness or a loss of employment. We are here to walk hand-in-hand with families and childcare professionals to ensure that everyone has what they need to thrive.
Calvary Place Testimonial

“The Innovation Grant has greatly improved the quality of Calvary Place in many ways. It has helped improve the health, and safety of the children in our center and enhanced the quality of our learning environments. Calvary Place has a lot of items throughout the center that were out-of-date and needed to be replaced. The grant that we received from NEXT Memphis has helped us purchase much-needed new items for our classrooms and computers for our senior preschoolers!! We are looking forward to a great new school year!”

HOPE House Testimonial

“The Innovation Grant would allow us the opportunity to fix our classrooms and provide a clean and healthy environment for our kids to learn. It would give us the chance to ensure our space meets a high-quality safety standard.”

Mr. Anderson

"NEXT Memphis has been an integral part of Lambs and Ivy for the past two years. Their team has provided support to our teachers by providing classroom management training,  support with CDA certification, and CPR recertification. Through a grant that NM received, we were able to request the purchase of books, chairs, and additional manipulatives to update our center's library.

The support that NEXT Memphis provides has been especially helpful during COVID and navigating supply chain issues with obtaining sanitizer, gloves, and masks."

A network of support for now. And for the future.

Every NEXT Memphis partner gets access to an entire network of support — without having to increase tuition or costs. This helps elevate everyone in the early childhood development community.
For Children
We help our partners foster safe and nurturing environments in which children can optimally grow. This leads to the healthy development of children who are kindergarten-ready educationally, socially, and emotionally.
For Families
NEXT Memphis works with each partner to ensure that every family has the resources, support, and bandwidth to engage proactively in the healthy development of their child. This can mean helping meet parents’ needs in order for them to be fulfilled in their own pursuits. This also enables directors to support their families without having to be a social worker or spend their personal savings to help families through challenges.
For Professionals
Working in early childhood education is demanding. That’s why we devote so many resources to lowering the stresses of teachers and directors while providing coaching, resources, and direct staff support needed to thrive. Our goal is to beat burnout and increase staff retention so professionals can spend more time focusing on children and families.
For Systems Leaders
The hallmarks of a high-quality early childhood education ecosystem include uniform leadership, elevated standards, and rigorous accountability. To that end, we’re helping increase compensation in the industry, fostering a more robust talent pool, and supporting regulations that further high-quality early childhood programming. This will ultimately help prepare children for school — and families for success — both now and for generations to come.
