Why is this CRUCIAL NOW?

Scenarios* comparing PRE-coronavirus to those DURING the pandemic estimate childcare center COST INCREASES of:

  • Infant up 29%
  • Toddler up 45%
  • 3-Year Old up 54%
  • 4-Year Old up 59% 

With actuals varying significantly between states/provinces based on allowed opening dates, capacities, ratios, tuition delays, rent/mortgage abeyances, real or expected staff subsidies, etc., the task of building a 2021 budget under such uncertainties can easily feel overwhelming.  

All the more reason to explore realistic customized strategies with an expert NOW, to re-emerge from the crisis in a stronger position as compared to fledgling competitors. Can you really afford NOT to act?

There is still time to strategize positive options with KAREN if you ACT NOW!
