The benefits of joining Smartcare University
We understand that childcare owners start their own businesses to foster their love of children. Many of you have a passion to provide high-quality early learning in your communities and a deep desire to teach the littlest learners with love, care, and support (and lots of giggles!).
Chances are, you didn’t start a business because you believe that licensing requirements, income statements, and teacher-to-child ratios are fun.
We created Smartcare University to support you and your staff—to help childcare directors learn and grow in areas of business where they may need an extra hand. While we can’t promise to make budgeting fun, we can promise to provide extra business support, advice, and help to passionate, dedicated people like you.
