We would like to welcome you to Better Futures—a consulting agency based in the District of Columbia, serving clients in the United States and abroad. Our mission is simple- we support, guide and educate those who care for and about young children, and try to be an agent for positive change in the world; to create financially sound, high-quality organizations that embrace research and effective business practices. Better Futures also assist our clients in overcoming operational and economic disadvantages that have limited their growth and survivability within the early childhood education industry. 

Better Futures utilizes a team of technical experts, skilled financial professionals and seasoned practitioners  who work with our clients to develop their capacity and move them toward sustainability-competency and confidence. Our team is committed to supporting aspiring leaders as they work to learn, create and implement action plans to enhance their ability to strengthen their businesses, resulting in the continuous improvement of the early childhood education program and services offered to young children, their families and staff who work with them.

We've also been working on new tools and services for the early childhood industry. Better Futures has recently been awarded Trainer Status in the State of Pennsylvania. We are now Certified to train in the District of Columbia, Ohio, Maryland and Pennsylvania. We've also been busy developing a web-based online training platform for ECE Associations (CRAFTP) and their members. Association members receive Clock Hours from Better Futures and monthly courses that are designed specifically for their members. We're moving into the 2nd year of that vital work! In 2021, we have rolled a training program in Philadelphia to support and guide providers in the area of financial management using QuickBooks. Each provider receives a 1 year complimentary QuickBooks subscription along with webinar training and one-on-one coaching to assist them in learning bookkeeping and financial management skills. Lastly, Better Futures recently became a Certified Trainer for Zero to Three and will soon roll-out new content for the ECE industry


Finally, we urge you to consider joining the Better Futures community either through CRAFTPass or CRAFT Family, our newest webinar training platform for Family providers. Both innovative programs can help your ECE organization increase it's capacity and your ability to successfully compete and win grant opportunities. Members have already begun winning grants on their first attempt. We look forward to working with you on growing your business in the billion dollar ECE
