Problem

Finding affordable child care for infants and toddlers is an enormous challenge for working parents that live in Washington D.C. Child Development Centers that offer a wide range of educational and character building activities are difficult to locate as well. Compassionate and loving care for children in secure facilities at their earliest age is essential in creating a foundation for their lives that will lead to success. As infants and toddlers grow and become elementary school students, it is crucial that they receive an education that teaches customary academics and challenges them to develop personally toward self-actualization.


Solution

Our primary objectives focus on enhancing student’s reading skills and providing a safe and nurturing environment for our infants and toddlers. In addition to our prime objectives, we provide an atmosphere that builds self-esteem and a desire to learn. Our programs are developed to educate our students beyond standard academics such as, modeling and teaching financial and physical awareness and well being. Providing such services in the heart of the D.C. Metropolitan area allows parents and guardians to place their children in programs that are not only focused on student success but provides the parent/guardian an opportunity to be involved in their children’s education. This will all occur in an environment that will challenge young minds and introduce all program participants to new possibilities.

Market

The Early Childhood Education industry provides care for infants and children in preschool. Industry operators are mostly private and rely primarily on tuition paid by parents and funding from the government, which attempts to alleviate the cost for low-income households. Over the five years to 2018, IBISWorld expects revenue to rise at an annualized rate of 3.2% to $53.1 billion, including growth of 1.2% in 2018 alone. Over the past five years up to 2018, industry revenue has grown as a result of sustained low unemployment and increased disposable income amid high demand for child care services.

Out-of-school time (OST) Industry focuses on communities engaging and supporting children and youth when they are not in school. At best, programs and activities operate on youth development principles and adhere to the conviction that youth are present as well as future assets. Creative out of school time programs, activities and supports can protect children, engage them in productive activities, develop and hone competencies, encourage school attendance, provide peace of mind for parents and lead to healthier life trajectories. When a community develops a strong, sustainable out-of-school time system that supports the social, emotional and physical development of children and youth, it builds strong families and neighborhoods as well.
