From The Desk of Julie Bartkus...
My name is Julie Bartkus and I'd like to welcome you to my ground breaking program for child care owners where these things are our priority. Our commitment is to help child care owners bring EXCELLENCE to life in every aspect of their child care program so parents, staff and your community FEEL the difference when they walk in through the doors to your child care program. And not only will they FEEL the difference - so will you.
Our program is based on the core belief that how you do anything is how you do everything so that you can experience a dynamic and positive shift in your child care program and in your life in record time. The Child Care Program of Excellence(tm) is designed to take a holistic look at your child care business and help you identify what specific action steps you need to take to finally get you the BIG change you've been trying to bring into fruition on your own.
Unlike any other program out there - we do not put band-aides over the challenges you face. Our goal is not to give you countless ideas that get you results for the short-term but rather to implement ideas that will set you up for success and EXCELLENCE for the long-term. Our focus is on quality and sustainability with what you implement so you can get off of the hamster wheel and make progressive change happen from the inside of your program outward.
In my 16 plus years working as an internationally known child care business success coach I've discovered that there's a hierarchy of needs that a child care business owner has. The first is to fill spots. Fill enrollments and get staff in place so you're in ratio. For some - they never leave this place of needing to fill spots because of turnover in clients and turnover in staff. It can become an endless cycle of people leaving and people coming. Many never reach full capacity. They may get to 90% full accept that as their norm and then experience a decline and then start implementing marketing ideas to get their numbers back up there. For those who do achieve full enrollments they then search for ways to increase their profits. Their numbers are still not high enough. Then as time and resources permit they work on the staff motivation piece. Their initial efforts were to get spots filled so they could stay in ratio. Too many owners view staff motivation as a luxury and never get to the point where they have a sustainable - positive and productive workplace culture. Not only does this deplete the true quality of your child care program - it also causes millions of dollars to leak out of your pocket.
Here, at the Child Care Program of Excellence (TM), we are dead-set determined to help you achieve and maintain full enrollments, experience the lifetime value of a client in terms of profits and keep high quality staff in place to support your vision. We believe that all of the pieces (Motivation, Marketing, PR, Quality, Profits) are interconnected and you can't merely treat one aspect of what's not working but you have to make an internal shift that will in essence help you change everything and change it in record time.
