Teaching while consumed with anxiety
Anxiety in the workplace has become so apparent these days. You may have experienced this in your workplace as more and more new hires are missing the first couple days of their new positions with our companies. In the past, a new hire wouldn’t consider missing a day of work until long after the work relationship had been established for at least 90 days. Today, why do you think more and more new hires are missing work right out of the gate?

Child Care Training Challenges
I once asked a group of administrators and directors what they found most challenging about engaging staff in a plan for continuous professional development. Some of the common responses they heard from staff included…
“I don’t need to do professional development. I attend staff meetings every month.”
“I didn’t like high school. Why would I go to college?”
“I don’t have time to take more training. I already work full-time.”
“I’ve been in this field for years. I know all I need to know.”
Divorce affects your child care center
Learn to identify the symptoms so you can offer the best care for the child
Divorce is stressful for all family members, especially if children are involved. The resulting transitions and adjustments are not easy for them. As a parent, relative, child care provider or teacher, it’s important you are aware of the potential negative effects that divorce can have a child’s life.
Strategize casually with other child care owners and leaders at the lake
Our Another You Retreats are right around the corner!
As you may know, all of our retreats have historically been limited to ONLY Another You customers. We received overwhelming requests to be able to attend our retreats so, we have decided to open up one of our retreats to any owners/administrators who would like to attend. For the first time our, Another You - Creative retreat will be available to the public!
Transform Your Childcare Marketing
Marketing might possibly be the most important thing you do for your business.
Does marketing your center feel like a daunting task? You know how important it is, but you have no idea how to start tackling it. You feel you need to take what you are doing to the next level, but you aren’t sure how to navigate all the avenues you can go down. Your center is 90% full, you have a lot of word of mouth referrals, but how can you take that 90% and make it 100%?

Culture Sets the Pace and Determines the Success You Have at Your Childcare Center
Does it seem like everyone keeps talking about culture, but you can't make any progress changing yours? You try things to make it better yet your retention rate isn’t improving. Employee frustration is threatening your business. The work environment is tense, and despite your best efforts, your employees are becoming more and more disengaged and productivity is dropping.
Earn Extra Income For Your Childcare Center
As a childcare consultant, I meet with centers across the U.S. I am often approached on new ways to generate more income beyond just enrollment. Even when I ran my own childcare centers before starting Child Care Biz Help, I often asked myself that same question. Although I am very innovative at generating new ideas, I always knew there had to be a pot of gold beyond enrollment, but what and where was it?
