Registration Open for UnConference: The Business of Child Care

On Saturday, October 19, Trying Together will host UnConference: The Business Side of Child Care to explore the fundamentals of running a successful child care business.


Child care centers play a vital role in the success of families and their young children. For parents and caregivers, access to care is necessary to remain or renter the workforce, an effort often needed to ensure financial security. For children, access to care means access to a world of social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth opportunities. However, even with invaluable benefits, it can be expensive to establish, manage, and maintain a family, center-based, or relative child care facility.

That’s why Trying Together is hosting UnConference: The Business of Child Care. From marketing and human resources to day-to-day accountability and business planning, this UnConference will dive deep into the business fundamentals of running a successful child care business. Participants will hear from Keynote Speaker Rona Nesbit, CFO of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, participate in hands-on workshops, enjoy panel discussions with audience Q&A sessions, and more. The event will also feature presenters from Trying Together, PNC Financial Services, Shared Source PA, and more.
