Frequently Asked Questions

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 year, because each year we bring new content, new speakers, new strategies, and the latest tools, software, and exhibitors who can help you grow and succeed.

Here’s who is in the audience – and who you will be meeting, and making lifelong friendships and “mastermind” relationships with:

  • Owners of private preschools, many with multiple locations 
  • Owners of Montessori and Reggio-inspired schools 
  • Executive directors, directors, and marketing managers 
  • Leaders of church-based and denominational early learning programs 
  • Family child care owners who want to expand to a center-based program 
  • Start-ups of early childhood centers 

The Child Care Success Summit™ is the only early childhood conference that is 100% focused on the ‘business side’ of our industry. We structure the sessions specifically for owners and entrepreneurs who want to grow their businesses and serve more people in their community. We offer the best business content, bar none, as well as some of the industry’s top business experts. From marketing and enrollment to expansion and financing, you’ll find it here if you’re an owner or executive director. If you want to be the best in your market, and you’re a success-oriented owner or leader, this is a can’t-miss event.

Absolutely not. We focus on nearly every aspect of the ‘business side’ of child care and preschool. In addition to the latest marketing and enrollment-building techniques, we teach mindset, motivation, staffing, systems and leadership strategies. We teach and inspire so you can live your best life, in addition to being fully enrolled with a wait-list

No. This is not one of those events. This is a true training boot-camp taught by Kris Murray, a well-known and in-demand child care business expert. Along with getting lots of ‘Kris Murray’ content and strategies, you’ll also get the chance to hear from several special guest expert speakers that have been hand-selected by Kris and her team on topics of leadership, marketing, staff motivation and financial success strategies. The main stage sessions and breakout workshops have been carefully crafted to bring you a unique blend of business breakthroughs and “what’s working now” ideas. You’ll also hear from early learning business owners just like you on strategies they’ve implemented and actual results they’ve gotten, so you can model their success.

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

However, you will also get a lot out of it if you attend alone or with a 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

While Kris Murray does attend a handful of state and national child care conferences throughout the year, no other event even comes close to the scope and strategic focus of the Child Care Success Summit™. And Kris won’t be traveling around with this content – due to the extreme level of effort, time, resources and funding to put on a conference of this size, this is a once-a-year only opportunity and this year it’s in Orlando, Florida. Make the small investment in time and travel costs and get here. You won’t regret it.

If you register now and then need to cancel, you can do so by Thursday, August 31, 2023 and get a full refund. After Thursday, August 31, 2023, no refunds will be given.


We expect over 1,400 ECE owners, directors, and lead administrative staff to attend. Last year in Nashville, we had over 1,300 attendees with a sell out in September, and the ‘buzz’ was so powerful that we expect substantial growth this year. 

Then pray your closest competitors don’t attend this event and gain an instant advantage over you and your child care program. (Sorry – may sound harsh, but it’s true). And…there’s a money-back guarantee on the event so if you discover it’s not what you expected, you’re 100% covered plus I’ll throw in $500 for your time and trouble.
