Iron Triangle Reporting
For many child care providers, the cost of running a business and understanding how to budget accordingly can be discouraging. Luckily, there’s a simple blueprint for child care providers to keep in mind when structuring a budget for the new year.
The Iron Triangle is a financial model made up of three key factors.
Full enrollment and clear attendance
For child care, most of the revenue comes from tuition, so an accurate enrollment estimate is imperative for budgeting. Projected tuition can be estimated by enrollment, but tuition is governed by attendance reporting. Procare makes it easy for centers to track their growth in enrollment and attendance and provide insights into enrollment opportunities and staffing needs as they grow.
Revenues cover per-child cost
Beyond full enrollment, a center must make sure revenue covers the per-child cost of quality care. For many families, high quality childcare is more than they can afford. The biggest price drivers for high-quality care are child-to-staff ratios, staff salaries and benefits. Other costs include rent, furnishings, food and educational materials. Procare cuts down on the time needed to manage child care facilities, while also reporting on payroll and expenses to help administrators stay on top of their finances.
Full fee collection or arrears mitigation
As a result of the high price of quality care and working to maintain full enrollment, most centers operate with razor-thin margins. This makes full fee collection imperative — late or missed payments can create instability for a center. With recurring payment options and the ability to process payments by debit or credit card, or with ACH, centers can control their payment schedule to make sure they’re paid on time, every time.
