The 2022 Child Care Success Summit Recap

  • April 18, 2023

Whether in Australia or oversees, it’s always interesting to see the similarities in the Early Childhood Education and Care industry globally.

On October 19, the Kangarootime team took to Nashville, TN to celebrate the 2022Child Care Success Summit, hosted by Kris Murray. We had a blast catching up with customers, both locally and internationally, meeting childcare providers, learning from industry experts, and, of course, enjoying the city! 

We kicked off the Summit by setting up our newly designed booth, focused on highlighting the value we bring to our customers. We showcased the Kangarootime features including casual bookings, parent engagement app, reports, lead management, just to name a few,  and received great feedback from attendees. 

A conference wouldn’t be complete without some free swag. We brought along Kangarootime branded hats, sweatshirts, pens, stickers, and more to give out to our booth visitors.

We had a special surprise on Friday – Braid Babes! BraidBabes is a women-owned company with operations in Buffalo, Nashville, and Scottsdale. They’re a team of mobile braiders and they came to make our visitors look their best!

Overall, the Kangarootime team had a blast at the Child Care Success Summit! Talking to childcare providers, from around the world, face-to-face gives us a better understanding of their challenges and experiences, allowing us to help create better solutions. We learned so much and are looking forward to sharing our insights with our team. We can’t wait for next year!
