Growing Your Business by Adapting Employer Child Care Practices
Spencer, Becky
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n205 p42-45 May-Jun 2012
As an early childhood professional for 30 years operating both traditional and employer child care programs, the author believes that traditional center owners and operators have an opportunity to grow their business, serve more children and families, and stay relevant for future workforce needs by integrating employer child care practices into their business plans. Her corporate experience includes a major hospital system in Ohio, a large automaker union based in Michigan, and an entertainment company in Florida. Each had unique needs for their employees that local centers were not meeting. This article will: (1) Take a look at why these businesses chose to provide employer child care services for their employees; (2) Define the differences and challenges of traditional and employer child care centers; and (3) Highlight the new features traditional centers could add to their center operations.
