Next Level
for Providers

A groundbreaking community initiative to expand childcare to all hours of the day.

Square One has identified that our community is evolving and the need for second-shift, third-shift, and weekend childcare is in demand more than ever. We are proud to partner with organizations such as Baystate Health, Smith & Wesson, FOCUS, MGM Springfield, and others on our newest initiative, Square One: Next Level.

Square One is taking it to the Next Level and we want you on board. We’re excited to announce that we are now looking for home-based family childcare providers here in the Western Mass community. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, are looking for a flexible part-time or full-time schedule, love kids, or are interested in getting into the childcare field, we have the opportunity for you. Join us in our groundbreaking expansion and purposeful alignment to our community’s needs.
