When you go to a restaurant, the quality of the food is critical to whether or not you like the restaurant and want to go back. 

But food isn’t the only thing that matters, is it? There are a lot of other aspects of the experience that are just as important, if not more so. The service, atmosphere, and cost are just a few things that come to mind.

Well, the same can be said about early childhood education. 

Just like the food at a restaurant, the children are the highest priority at your school. Their health, safety, and education are at the center of everything you do.

But the parent experience is also absolutely critical to a child’s success, which means that they, too, deserve careful attention.

In this week’s podcast episode, I’m sitting down with Ron Spreeuwenberg, the Co-Founder & CEO of HiMama, a software company that helps early childhood education centers manage their schools, engage parents, and support their staff.

During the episode, Ron and I chat about why the parent experience is so important to early childhood education centers and what you and your team can be doing to make it more of a priority this year.

Join us for a conversation about:

  • The story and values behind HiMama
  • Why parent communication and engagement is so critical
  • How to better address the concerns of today’s parents
  • What early childhood education leaders need to be thinking about for 2023
