HINGE Presenting at Two Childcare Conferences This October

Pennsylvania Early Childhood Summit

HINGE Founder Kathy Ligon, Operations & Staffing Consultant Kathe Petchel and Associate Broker Alec Ligon will attend the Pennsylvania Early Childhood Summit from October 15-17 at the Penn State Conference Center in State College, PA.

Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear Kathy & Kathe speak during their presentation, The Balancing Act: Staff Costs & Revenue, on Monday at 1:15pm. During this presentation, they will reveal the spending habits of a healthy school, how best to adjust tuition rates and how to improve recruitment, hiring and onboarding in order to find and keep quality staff.

Presentation attendees will have a chance to win a HINGE-branded bobble hat or one of our favorite books, The Go-Giver. And, if they visit our HINGE booth, will get the opportunity to enter a drawing for a chance to win a ticket to our fall THRIVE workshop in Boston, MA.


VCCA Fall Conference

Kathy & Kathe will also be attending and speaking at VCCA’s Fall Conference themed “Where Are We And Where Do We Go From Here?” The event is being held on Thursday, October 18th at J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College in Richmond, VA.

Childcare business expert Kathy Ligon will help kick off the event at 9:15am with an overview of the trends and challenges currently facing the early education industry. And Virginia childcare business owner Kathe Petchel will share her knowledge and expertise as both a panel member for a discussion of “Safety & Security” at 11am and a highlighted speaker presenting on the importance of core values at 1:15pm.
