Whether it's Skyping with 4-year-olds in China or playing with the latest early literacy app, ECE leaders are coming up with all kinds of creative ways to integrate technology into their curriculum. But what about technology in the business's backend?
In our tech-obsessed world, staying true to Montessori ideals can be a challenge. Maria Montessori’s 100-year-old teaching techniques were scientifically designed based on children’s needs and development—from the importance of an organized classroom, to learning through physical objects. But what she didn’t account for was the digital age—for better or worse, her founding philosophies quickly start to blur as soon as you throw an iPad into the mix.
Every business deserves a great start. And a detailed business plan is the best way to ensure your ECE franchise or center is headed for success right from day 1. From basic operations to big-picture expansion plans, developing your ideas before you open your doors can help you stay focused on what really matters.
