"I brought 2 of my leaders to the Child Care Business Summit. I have so much more to do in my business owning & life journey and not only was I inspired but so were the perspectives of my 2 co-workers. Since then, we have all imagined more, desired more & made connections that we wouldn't have made without the experience."

-Julie Amy, Child Care Center Owner

Pinckney, MI

"Be prepared to have your life changed! Before attending this Summit, I was lacking the confidence in myself and the child care industry to expand as a home provider to a center-based provider. I went home from this conference with the confidence to move forward with my dream. On June 12, I opened my center! Evelyn, her team and the speaker this conference chooses made me feel empowered and gave me the guidance to make my dreams come true! I am now looking for my 2nd location",
