With the increase in inflation and more single parents, the typical family is now finding the need to have both parents work outside the home. This trend has created a need for quality and affordable childcare. The population growth in the city area increased 15.7% between 1990 and 2000 and is expected to increase 1.3% over the next decade (citydata.com, 2007). This leads Building Blocks Childcare Center to believe that quality childcare services will be needed more in the near future. Price, services, and reputation will be critical to the success of the center. The center will compete well with the competition by offering competitive pricing, high-quality childcare services, and maintaining a positive reputation within the community as well as with parents and staff members.
