Principal Consultant and Coach
Sponsored by Smartcare
This dynamic webinar may change your thinking about how you and your staff interact with parents and handle prospective families. Leatha Ritchie, Child Care business expert will cover the importance of customer service skills in early childhood programs, and provide examples about how to best use “customer service thinking” to impact retention and parent satisfaction.
Taking a customer service approach means that from the moment families inquire about your program to the day they are no longer enrolled, you and your staff realize they have choices about who they entrust with their children’s care. Leatha, an experienced early childhood expert, will share her secrets about tips for telephone interactions, dealing with challenging situations with families, making good impressions with parents, and dealing with collecting tuition with finesse.
You will leave this webinar with insight that will help you:
- Have increased empathy for parents to look beyond behavior and acknowledge or consider their feelings.
- Demonstrate and share with staff the what outstanding customer service looks like at your center.
- Plan at least 5 new ways to improve customer service at their center.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
