She will be supported in daily operations by an industry consultant, and three directors, and a VP of educational operations, all with extensive experience in child care fields.

With inflation continuing to rise each year, the typical American family now requires dual or supplemental incomes. This trend has created a need for quality child care services. The population growth rate in the Joliet/Plainfield area of Will County is now over 14.6%, leading us to anticipate expanding market potential for this industry in our local area. Price, service, certification and reputation are critical success factors in the child care services industry. 

MLH Early Education Foundation NFP, will compete well in our market by offering high-quality child care services and leading-edge educational programs with certified, college-educated instructors, and by maintaining an excellent reputation with parents and the community we serve.

This is a daycare business plan for MLH Early Education Foundation NFP®, which will focus on two subdivisions: 'Joliet/Plainfield' and 'The Will County area. Which are new upscale community developments within a 2 square mile radius, boasting over 900 new homes? Our target customers are dual-income, middle-class families who value the quality of education and child care we provide for their children, ages 2 months to 12 years.

We will open for business starting with an initial enrollment of 20 students. We project healthy revenues by the end of the first year, and expect to nearly triple that by the end of Year 3. Our biggest operating expenses will be compensation at industry standard rates for our highly-qualified personnel, and our facilities, improved for our purposes during the start-up period. We would like to grow into two centers, eventually, but growth is planned conservatively, to be financed from existing cash flow as we go.

Shows Continuous Quality Improvement Commitment to Children in Joliet

Joliet, Illinois - March 15, 2016 - Kera Lewis received the Silver Circle of Quality designation from ExceleRate Illinois,
the state's new quality recognition and improvement system for early learning and development providers.

"Every early learning and development provider who participates in ExceleRate Illinois makes quality a priority,"
said Kate Riter, Licensing and QRIS Integration Director, Governor's Office of Early Childhood Development. "The
higher the designation, the higher the program's demonstrated quality and comprehensiveness in meeting
children's early learning needs," she said.

"We are proud to receive the Silver Circle of Quality," said Kera Lewis-Rodriguez. "Providing quality in early
learning and development will help our children in Joliet be better prepared for success in school and in life."

ExceleRate Illinois helps families make more informed choices about their children's early learning. It establishes
standards to help infants, toddlers and preschoolers develop intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.
Additionally, it provides a framework for early learning and development professionals to identify opportunities to
enhance their knowledge and skills.

Research in science and brain development shows that children who are more meaningfully engaged in early
learning experiences from infancy through the first five years of life are more likely to be successful in school and in
life. With the right engagement, children can form a healthy foundation of neural pathways in the brain, which
impact their ability to think, react, process and grow.

ExceleRate Illinois is a comprehensive system that includes Licensed Child Care Centers, Licensed Family Child Care,
Preschool for All and Center-Based Prevention Initiative Programs, Head Start and Early Head Start Programs.
