Sustainability & Mentoring

Having a solid financial operational foundation is needed to run a childcare business successfully. You need to ensure you can meet your costs and adapt to varying conditions such as the economic climate, changes to regulation, demographic profile or changes to funding schemes.

Sustainability means being able to keep a service or facility functioning for the long‐term.
  • Can your service continue?
  • Will it survive into the future?
  • How does it respond to changes in its operating environment?
  • Has demand changed?
