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.

Evelyn Knight - Host

CEO and Founder

It may seem like I have it together, but it hasn’t always been that way. I started working in ECE over 25 years ago. I have held almost every position in a Preschool or childcare center. I have owned 3 centers, one I built from the ground up, one I purchased while it was operating, and I purchased one that had been shut down due to regulation violations. For years, my centers owned me instead of me owning them. I worked at least 50 hours a week and used my family’s personal money to keep the doors open.

During that period, the director and owner in me were in a battle between creating a high-quality center and a profitable one. My directors mind wanted a high-quality childcare center, not a daycare! The owner in me knew that making enough money to pay the bills had to come first. For a long time, I thought it was not possible to have a high quality, developmentally appropriate center and turn a profit.
Fast forward through a lot of lessons learned, money spent, and coaching gleaned...and now it is my life's mission to show you how to take back control of your center so that you can own your time while making money!
