The Child Care
Success Summit 2021

The World’s Largest Conference 100% Dedicated To The Business of Child Care

We invite you to join us and hundreds of success-oriented child care owners and leaders to the world’s largest conference devoted to the “business side” of early learning. This event takes place annually each October. Our 2021 conference location is still being determined and will be revealed as soon as our team is able to confirm it. Keep checking back for 2021 event updates!

Who is this conference for?

The Child Care Success Summit™ is a true owners conference. This is the largest conference in the world for owners of private preschools and child care centers, and over half of the attendees own multiple sites and are in fast growth mode.

This is also a conference that many people attend year after yearas each year we bring new content, new speakers, new strategies, and the latest tools, software, and exhibitors who can help you grow and succeed.

Who's in the audience?
Get ready to make lifelong friendships and “mastermind” relationships with:

Who should I bring with me?

Many past attendees have told us how powerful it is to attend with a key director or two from their team. That way, everyone goes home with the same motivation, vision for growth, and drive to implement what they learned from the Summit.

You will also get a lot out of it if you attend alone or with your spouse, because you’ll be able to truly “get away from your business” to work on your growth plan and strategic vision – as well as network with other owners.

Either way, you can’t lose. Get registered now before it sells out – you can always choose your guest later, or add on more guest tickets if you need to.

Level Up Your Business!
Here's Exactly What You'll Get...

Why Should You Attend?

A Unique experience Unlike Any Other

This is a unique experience unlike any other early childhood conference, trade show or event in the market today; it is entirely focused on 4 key things: revenue generation (enrollment), team success (staffing), systems and delegation, and mindset.

Be a Better Leader

We're bringing in highly successful business owners to talk about how to be a smarter, more effective and successful entrepreneur and how to be a leader in your early learning business. We’ve restructured the way we do breakout sessions to eliminate “vendor pitches” and just bring pure strategic content to you, for both directors and owners.

Fall In Love With Your Business Again

It's NOT just about "positive thinking" and motivation – although you will feel highly motivated when you leave. "More motivation" is a far too simplistic answer to the tough problems you are dealing with in your child care business. You need ANSWERS, clarity and solid, proven advice – which is exactly what you will get when you attend.

extremely productive environment

It's about being an active participant in a unique and extremely productive environment to help you get refocused on doing the RIGHT things to grow and succeed, whether that means maximizing the enrollment and staff excellence of one location, or growing to your 3rd, 5th, or 15th location.

Achieve new levels of growth and income

It's about providing you with the ONLY opportunity to see, in great depth, exactly how your peers are breaking through their current income, time and staff limitations to achieve phenomenal new levels of growth and income.

marketing and business-building strategies

It's about you getting to spend 3 full days with other success-focused early learning entrepreneurs who are "heavy users" of the Kris Murray Method(TM) strategies and methods, many of whom have been with us for years and can attribute huge increases in their personal wealth to the marketing and business-building strategies presented.

Our World-Famous Guarantee:

Your Money Back Plus $500 For Your Time And Travel

With nearly a decade-long history of success, we know based on a solid track record of growth and transformation for our attendees, that this conference will result in a massive leap in success and motivation for you and your early childhood business, no matter WHERE your program is located, no matter WHAT challenges you are facing.

Here’s Our Promise To You:

If you aren’t 100% completely satisfied and over-the-moon happy with what you get from this conference, and if for any reason you aren’t completely satisfied – simply let someone on my team know by 6:00 PM on Day One of the event, and I’ll refund 100% of your registration fee, PLUS give you $500 for your time and travel costs.
