Child Care Center Management Support

<<< Back

Professional DevelopmentQuality child care and preschool gives parents the peace of mind to go to work and be their most productive. And it ensures that we continue to produce the highly educated workforce business looks for and expects from New Jersey.

What value would you place on such a proven investment? The sad reality is that resources are currently very short. Centers providing care to low-income and ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) families receive just $26 a day from the state to educate preschoolers – that’s less than $3 an hour for a regular work day’s care. Combine that with declining enrollment, extensive (and expensive) upkeep, and costly licensing requirements and you have the makings of a shaky business model.

United Way is Here to Help

United Way is helping child care centers prepare and plan for these realities.

Working with a cadre of trained volunteers, United Way offers expert technical assistance to help centers keep operations afloat. Through strategies such as providing direct help with financial planning, orchestrating mergers to ensure centers remain open, consulting with boards to help with strategic planning, and sharing best practices, we have helped many centers keep their doors open in recent years.
