Supporting Growth: North Carolina Family Child Care To Preschool Centers

August 29, 2022


Blossoms Child Care, which began as a home-based child care program run by Margaret Shelton-Foushee, is now a rapidly expanding child care center. It increased by 400% in 2019 and is still growing.


Margaret must manage the schedules of teachers and parents as Blossoms grows and adapts to change. This, however, means an increased workload for an extremely busy child care director.


Margaret contacted the North Carolina Local Resource Referral Agency and learned that Wonderschool and Smart Start NorthCarolina/North Carolina Partnership for Children had just collaborated to stabilize child care. 

Wonderschool is an essential tool for my business. It frees my hands and helps me track ratios and payments. My parents love it because it’s easy to use and self-explanatory.-Margaret Shelton-Foushee, Child Care Director, Blossoms Childcare (Chapel Hill, North Carolina)

With Wonderschool tools, she received the operations help she needed. Parent communications, automatic tuition collection, and use with child care enrollments were all delivered in one easy-to-use preschool app. 


Margaret saves 2 hours per day on preschool administrative work. She uses the time-savings to attend to the needs of her employees and family while also expanding her business.
