Question: How can you get a teacher involved in enrollment?

Answer: Great questions! Let your teachers know they are your partners in converting enrollments.Three ways they can do are to be responsible for explaining their classroom to a visiting parent, for engaging the visiting child in an activity, and for writing a brief follow- up note to the parent, welcoming them to the center or program. How your teachers communicate with visiting parent and child is one of the four ways your staff can impact the enrollment decision.
