Website Plans for 2014

There are two major plans for the website this year:


This year there should be new workshops added every other month--that is the hope and plan. This past year was filled with a major move for us from the midwest to the east coast of the U.S., which put my workshop planning way behind. For that I apologize.


Due to the many questions and great email conversations regarding administration of preschool/childcare/family day care programs, I will be developing a sister site to Preschool Plan-It that will focus on the administrative side of preschool. Some of the topics to be covered will be:

Budgeting (classroom budgets, setting tuition, collecting overdue tuition).

Marketing (online, locally, in your community).

Parent Education.

And more!

More information will come out later in the year once this site is built.


If so, reply to this newsletter and let me know what topics you would like to be covered!

More themes have been added as e-books for purchase.

You can find the list of E-Books here! There is a small fee for each theme to help offset the time it takes to format and publish them. I will be formatting and publishing the remaining themes throught the fall so that they are all available by the end of the year.
