To get your leadership team on the same page in regards to these seven areas, you can schedule a book club like I did at my center. Using my new book "P.R.O.F.I.T.S. Childcare Success Formula," my directors, assistant directors, administrative and marketing personnel, met on one chapter a month. For each chapter we identified areas of improvement and areas we were strong in. From that we created goals after the conculsion of each chapter. Our end goal revolved around the formula grader and ensuring that we mastered each component of the childcare success formula by the end of one year.
I encourage all you child care leaders to get your copy of P.R.O.F.I.T.S. Childcare Success Formula and put it in the hands of your team. Encourage a group study on the topic with the end goal to create a culture both teachers and families will call their destination.
