When I became a mom for the first time I decided to open a registered family home. Prior to that I worked as a Certified Business Analyst helping female business owners. After a year, I realized that most of the women I met in this industry didn’t understand how their passion needed to be run like a business. I was a founding instructor for a program sponsored by the Ohio Department of Small Business.

For the last thirty years I have worked with thousands of business owners to help them find their passion and purpose. If you are looking to take your business to the next step…growth or retirement…I can help you.

ICF Ethics Statement

Carrie Casey

I was 3 years old when I decided I would have a childcare center when I grew up.  I loved my time at “school.”  Those teachers were amazing.  I couldn’t imagine a better life. Getting there was not easy.  At 23 I was a pregnant, young, mother who used her wedding gift money to put a down payment on a building for her center.  I had all the confidence in the world and not enough knowledge.  Passion and confidence carried me through a lot, but I didn’t really have success until I found a mentor.

My mentor, Sandy, had walked this road before and knew where some of the land mines were.  She helped me understand where parents were coming from when I just didn’t get it.  She helped me establish systems that relieved the chaos.

Without Sandy, I would not have made it 2 years.  I have been in the field for 30 years, 23 as a Director/Trainer.  I just found out that most Directors only make it 18 months.  That is so sad!  Being a Director can and should be a fabulous journey.

Now I get to pay it forward by mentoring other Directors.  Thank you.

I have been caring for children for over ten years and I recently decided to open a center. So, I thought I need a director’s credential and I better get started now. I found your program online, and got to work. I thought this will be easy, because I know childcare. However, to my surprise the online program was good, it kept me thinking and I learned many interesting things. I have a registered childcare home now and I know that once I open my center in the spring I will be successful thanks to my Texas Director Training.

The learning links online Texas director course allowed me the opportunity to fulfill my child care administrators credential at my own pace. The program was perfect for my needs as I was moving across the country to start a Montessori school. I found the staff consistently available when I needed assistance and flexible in catering to the specifics of my Montessori program. I highly recommend this course.

Thank you TexasDirector’s for your unconditional help and support. Me and my wife had questions about licensing program, and we emailed Carrie on Sunday, and she replied to us immediately on her off day. She is one of the most wonderful mentors or coach by far. We are highly recommending her to help you on your future business.
