At Child Care Marketing Services we’ve been honing in on the child care industry for many years, and we only work with people in the child care field.  In other words, we don’t consult with people in mid-sized companies or large corporations and Kris Murray is no ‘Jill-of-all-trades-coach’.  What this means to you, is that we are very focused on anything and everything that works for a business that serves children and families. Because our focus is very narrow, what you get with CCMS is no-nonsense, undiluted expertise on what works for child care owners and leaders.  We are experts at this stuff and that’s why our clients, groups and customers get great results (and we throw in a healthy dose of compassion, humor and encouragement, which ALWAYS helps!).

In many cases, we have helped programs remain open and shift from survival mode to a thriving, full business.
