Book Overview

Traditionally, child care has not been thought of as a business that could or should be profitable--a misconception this book is devoted to dispelling.

Well worth it!

I opened my first center 12 years ago and used this book. I am opening my 3rd the end of the year and I always refer back to this book to keep me on track!

Great Resource

There are very, very few books on starting and operating a for-profit child care business (believe me, I have looked!). This one is a gem; very well written by a person who has been there. Her flexible time system is right-on, although I'm not sure I'd have the guts to implement it. Margins are thin in this business; this book should help you get all you can out of it.

Comprehensive, well written, in-depth guide. Excellent

This is an excellent source book for anyone considering opening a child care center. It is comprehensive, well written and logically organised. The author covers every area of developing a center, from organisation of the space to conflict resolution to highlighting the ten most common mistakes in running a center. I would thoroughly recommend this book for anyone considering starting a business in child care.

Excellent detailing of starting up & managing child care ctr

The authors covered all aspects of startup from location and economics in your area to business plan examples. Showed implementation of their "flex-time" programming which is wonderful. I checked this book out of the library and two days later (after I finished it) I went out and bought it. It will be used over and over I am sure.

readers will come away from this book well-informed!

Great book for beginners as well as those experienced in the world of childcare and preschool. Offers realistic information related to starting up a center. Especially strong in the areas of writing a business plan and attaining funding. I learned quite a bit from reading this book.
