What our members have to say about our board consultations:

"My time with Scott was extremely helpful.  From ways to make our school more financially successful in the future, to small line item changes, he helped me to think more clearly about how to make our school financially stable for years to come."

--Sarah J.

"Being new to the child care industry we were feeling a bit overwhelmed and isolated at first. Luckily we were referred to ECEA and I can't say enough positive things about them. From having extremely knowledgeable, and accessible, staff to reach out to, to their in-depth training, and finally to their regulatory advocacy and lobbying, I feel we have a real partner that makes a very meaningful impact on our business success."
