Early Childhood Contract with the State of Indiana

Our Early Childhood Data System work began in 1999 when TCC was awarded a contract with the State of Indiana to develop a child care licensing management system. As our partnership with Indiana grew, TCC developed and integrated other modules needed to support the broad spectrum of early childhood programs and initiatives. TCC has implemented the following early childhood modules in Indiana: child care licensing, mobile child care inspections, subsidy management, QRIS and state and local pre-K management.

We’ve taken our experience in Indiana and expanded our work into other states. As bi-partisan support for early childhood has grown, so too has TCC’s capacity to provide comprehensive data system solutions for early childhood government agencies.

"By listening to our clients and understanding they're needed, we provide products and services that solve critical business challenges. We measure our success by the value we provide to our customers."

Andrew Hwang, TCC Principal and Chief Executive Officer

Without the use of a structured approach and methodology, early childhood data system projects may not be completed on time, within budget or to the quality standards expected by our clients. Additionally, to support compatibility and increased data linkages across early childhood data systems, it is important that solutions are designed with technologies that conform to our client’s standards.

TCC approaches each early childhood data management system project as a project that must be customized to meet the needs of the client throughout the design, development and implementation process. Our executive leadership encourages and expects our staff to take a “partner” approach when working with clients. A partnership approach means that TCC staff will listen carefully to your needs, help you define criteria for success and tailor solutions and processes that will fit your needs. Partnering with TCC also means that we will conduct frequent outreach to our clients about their satisfaction with project status and progress.

Based on our extensive experience with state early childhood data systems, and strong relationships with our early childhood education agency clients, TCC developed Ascend. For more information about Ascend click the button.
