Flexible Child Care: Good For your Center – Good for your Community

Offering flexible childcare is one of the easiest ways to boost enrollment and profitability - both short-term and long-term.

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”
― Albert Einstein

If you’re reading this, congratulations on persevering through 18 months of what has been the childcare industry’s greatest season of challenges...and changes.

Like you, I’m passionate about providing quality childcare and I’m reaching out to share a strategy on why and how centers can easily start offering and managing a solution to improve their centers and communities – that solution is flexible childcare.

With our ever-changing world, more parents are demanding flexible childcare options to accommodate dynamic work, family, and social commitments. By offering flexible, hourly, and drop-in care, you’re providing a safe, reliable, and beneficial service to your community - all while being a valuable resource for hard working parents.

Getting started:

First, I want to challenge you to think of flexible care as an opportunity to turn your cost center into a profit center!

Let’s quickly unpack that.

The biggest cost and investment that your center has is labor. To run a profitable center, you need to maximize that investment by making sure you maintain a high enrollment to capacity ratio.

Offering flexible childcare is one of the easiest ways to boost enrollment and profitability - both short-term and long-term.

Over the short-term, flexible, hourly, and drop-in care can fill in those open classroom time slots and keep your center running as profitable and efficiently as possible.

But, the benefits don’t stop there.

Data shows that many of those children that end up visiting for drop-in care ultimately convert into long-term customers; thereby, boosting enrollment over the long term as well.

And of course, offering flexible care isn’t just good business, it’s good for your community, too.
