EDP-5600: Business Planning for Nature Preschools

Starting a nature-based early childhood program requires business savvy and financial planning. This course will address the nitty-gritty planning necessary to get a program up and running. We’ll focus on the creation of business plans, including simple market analyses, promotion, site and facility needs, staffing requirements and options, the crucial income and expense projections, fundraising options and managing financial risk. Participants will draft a three-year budget for their operation, rough out a promotional flyer and/or website, and prepare and practice persuasive verbal descriptions and “sales pitches” for their school. We’ll allocate plenty of time to share your own experiences and ideas, and will take a close look at existing models that have proven successful in the United States.
