September 4, 2019 The Business of Child Care UnConference: The Business of Child Care Child care centers provide care, love and social-emotional growth for young children. The benefits are invaluable to both the children and families. But, there is a real cost and reality to managing a center, whether the child care is a family, center based or relative center. This UnConference dives into the business fundamentals of a successful child care business, from marketing and human resources to day-to-day accountability and business planning. Join us for a keynote by Rona Nesbit, CFO of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, to learn the benefits of shared services and how the award-winning Cultural District shared services model has provided growth, benefits and smart business insights to downtown-based performing arts organizations. Following the keynote, Rachelle Duffy of Trying Together moderates a panel discussion and audience Q&A on how shared services can and does similarly work for child care centers. Attendees will then engage in two workshops, featuring presenters from Trying Together, PNC Financial Services, Shared Source PA and more. Lunch is included and 5.5 hours of professional development credit will be offered. How to Register Register now to reserve your space!
