When I ask child care owners "how they established their tuition rates for each age group." A common response is, "we based our tuition rates on what other child care centers in the area charge." Taking into consideration the average tuition rate in the market area is important. However, the calculation of tuition rates must include more than just matching or being close to what competitors are charging. In this webinar workshop, we will cover several financial variables that must be considered when calculating tuition rates for each age group, program, and classroom. We'll look at not only the minimum tuition rate required to break even. But, also, what tuition rate is needed to achieve the desired level of profits. Yes, we will be talking "numbers and doing math" for the entire hour - but NO worries, we will go slow, and it will all make sense. Want to follow along? Sure - just have a copy of your current annual or monthly child care business expenses, total building square footage, and classroom square footage – and you can quickly calculate tuition rates for your child care business during the workshop.
