The World’s Largest Conference 100% Focused on the Business of Child Care

We invite you to join us and hundreds of success-oriented child care owners and leaders to the world’s largest conference devoted to the “business side” of early learning. This year’s conference will take place at the beautiful Omni Resort at Championsgate in Orlando, FL from October 9 – 12, 2019.

Who is this conference for?

The Child Care Success Summit™ is a true owners conference. This is the largest conference in the world for owners of private preschools and child care centers, and over half of the attendees own multiple sites and are in fast growth mode.

This is also a conference that many people attend year after year, because each year we bring new content, new speakers, new strategies, and the latest tools, software, and exhibitors who can help you grow and succeed.

Here’s who is in the audience – and who you will be meeting, and making lifelong friendships and “mastermind” relationships with:

・Owners of private preschools, many with multiple locations
・Owners of Montessori and Reggio-inspired schools
・Executive directors, directors, and marketing managers
・Leaders of church-based and denominational early learning programs
・Family child care owners who want to expand to a center-based program
・Start-ups of early childhood centers

Who should I bring with me?

Many past attendees have told us how powerful it is to attend with a key director or two from their team, so everyone goes back home with the same motivation, vision for growth, and drive to implement what they learned from the Summit.

However, you will also get a lot out of it if you attend alone or with a spouse, because you’ll be able to truly “get away from your business” to work on your growth plan and strategic vision – as well as network with other owners.

Either way, you can’t lose. Get registered now before it sells out – you can always choose your guest later, or add on more guest tickets if you need to.

Why you should attend

This is a unique experience unlike any other early childhood conference, trade show or event you may have attended and is entirely focused on 4 key things: revenue generation (enrollment), team success (staffing), systems and delegation, and mindset.

It is NOT about delivering boring, dry vendor pitches. We're bringing in highly successful business owners to talk about how to be a smarter, more effective and successful entrepreneur and how to be a leader in your early learning business. We’ve restructured the way we do breakout sessions to eliminate “vendor pitches” and just bring pure strategic content to you, for both directors and owners.

It is NOT just about "positive thinking" and motivation – although you will feel highly motivated when you leave. "More motivation" is a far too simplistic answer to the tough problems you are dealing with in your child care business. You need ANSWERS, clarity and solid, proven advice – which is exactly what you will get when you attend.

It IS about being an active participant in a unique and extremely productive environment to help you get refocused on doing the RIGHT things to grow and succeed, whether that means maximizing the enrollment and staff excellence of one location, or growing to your 3rd, 5th, or 15th location.

・It IS about providing you with the ONLY opportunity to see, in great depth, exactly how your peers are breaking through their current income, time and staff limitations to achieve phenomenal new levels of growth and income.

・It IS about you getting to spend 3 full days with other success-focused early learning entrepreneurs who are "heavy users" of my strategies and methods, many of whom have been with me for years and can attribute huge increases in their personal wealth to the marketing and business-building strategies I've given them.

LYNNE SUTTONCEO @ Kids Korner
“Attending the Summit was the BEST investment I’ve made for my Montessori schools, hands down!” I attended my first Child Care Success Summit™ in October 2107 in Chicago. I thought…what a great way to meet some new people that share the same love for childcare as myself! NEVER expecting what this last month has brought! 22 years in childcare and I’m learning something new EVERYDAY! We have enrolled 25 students just this month and the inquiries are on fire! I must say thank you to Kris. Honestly, when we attended the Summit we truly thought we were awesome and we were doing everything we needed to be doing. Ummmm NO!  Kris truly cares and I can CLEARLY see the difference in my business. I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you! This is truly the BEST investment I have made for our business hands down.
