Early Education Business Program
A "mini MBA" for child care providers!
Why should I enroll in this FREE program?
If you are like most child care providers and preschool directors, your background and skills are in educating children—and not necessarily in business. For your program to be successful, you need more than amazing staff and a nice facility. You need to follow a proper business model, with proven HR practices, budgeting ability, branding and marketing, and customer service to your parents. This is an investment of your time, and into your program.
