"It was magical..." Gerry Pastor and Jane Porterfield, Owners, Educational Playcare

"I don't know what I would have done without Julie..." Katie Clinon, Executive Director  

"Julie's Programs Surpass Others..." Bob Kuehner, Ower, Amazing Kids

Julie partners with child care owners and organizations to transform Child Care Programs worldwide...

Tune in to hear from them...

"I first heard Julie speak at a childcare conference last Fall and immediately knew that she was our missing link. Over the years we've struggled enormously to motivate our employees and improve the quality of our work environments. 10 minutes after she finished her presentation, I'd signed her up to come to Connecticut on two occasions. In February she spent two full days with our directors and assistant directors, and as much as I hate words like this, it was indeed transformational. Julie is the real deal and I guarantee she'll bring things to your programs that will also be 'transformational.'"  

Gerry Pastor & Jane Porterfield, Owners, Educational Playcare LTD Massachusetts  


"When I first took over the center, staff were beginning to look for other jobs and wouldn't recommend the center to friends or family for jobs or childcare. Now, I have people calling me and emailing me for work and child care openings. I feel like I've built the foundation for a successful business."  

Kathy Monahan, Owner Massachusetts  

“Investing in Julie’s programs was the BEST decision I made. Julie has this incredible insight to be able to look at a child care program and communicate what action steps need to be taken to create an excellent program including a motivated team. Since working with Julie we have attracted some of the best staff members possible.”  

Tami Nix, Owner, Archway Academy


"Julie is amazing... I have been working with Julie for almost three years now since my husband and I bought an existing preschool that has been in operation since 1963. In that time, I have seen a dramatic difference in my child care business. First, my staff turnover is staggeringly low. In 2015, with a staffing need of 15, I turned over 20 people! In 2016, we closed our School Age program so we needed a staff of 11 and we turned over 10 people. This year to date, I have had to fire 1 person!!! Second, the turnover in families has dropped so we are keeping more families than before. Lastly, since June 1, 2017, to now - August 7, 2017 - we have enrolled 16 new children at a time when typically enrollment is nonexistent. Overall our enrollments are up, from 36 in October 2014 to a high of 53 this year. I can't say enough about Julie and her book..."

- Deidre Nordel, Owner, FunShip Children's Center
