Module 2 Discussion

Food Service
In Chapter 11 of your course text, the authors describe the many factors that must be considered when creating a food service program at a child development center. While food service can be a valuable opportunity to provide children with nutritious meals, it also requires careful and complex planning and can introduce a number of logistical and financial complications as a result. In this Discussion, you will consider the benefits and challenges of providing meal service at a child development center. Reflect on the following:

What are the pros of providing meal service at a child development center? What benefits might meal service bring to children, their families, and the center as a whole?
What are the cons of providing meal service at a child development center? What challenges might you, as a director, face when implementing a meal service program at your center?
Given these pros and cons, what type of meal service, if any, would you choose to provide at your center? Why?

With these thoughts in mind, follow the instructions below to post your response to this Discussion topic.
By Day 3 of Week 3:
Post an explanation of what type of meal service, if any, you would provide at your child development center. Describe how you arrived at this decision after weighing the pros and cons of the provision of meal service.
By Day 7 of Week 4:
Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.
Respond to at least two colleagues who have presented an opposing view from your own. Does their viewpoint change your perspective? Or do you disagree? Explain your thoughts and reactions.
Return to this Discussion in a few days to read the responses to your initial posting. Reflect on what you learned in this activity and/or insights you gained this week.

Module 2 Project

Course Project Assignment: Budget Planning
Note: Review the information in the Project Overview section prior to completing this assignment.
For this assignment, you will create a budget for the child development center that you identified. To begin, determine the priorities of your center and program, and think about how you might allocate funds based on these goals. Is this a start-up budget (i.e., you are opening a new center), or is this an operating budget (i.e., you are the director of an already established center)? Then, create a spreadsheet that lists income and expenses. (You may use the sample budget shown in Figure 6.5 as a guide, although you should customize your income and expense items and amounts to the resources/needs of your center.) Finally, write a brief 1-page narrative budget that explains the major components of each category and why they are included.
You should submit an Excel spreadsheet containing your center’s budget and a Word doc containing a 1-page narrative budget.
Due by Day 7 of Week 4.

Module 2 Discussion

Discussion: Analyzing a Budget
As the authors explain in Chapter 6 of your course text, budget planning for a child development center is influenced by many different factors, including where the organization is in its life cycle and the priorities of the organization. Because funds are rarely unlimited, center directors often must make difficult decisions regarding how to budget resources in the most strategically advantageous way. In this vein, review the sample budget for Rainbow Place (Figure 6.5) in your course text, and consider the following:

What changes might you recommend be made in the budget for Rainbow Place, and why?
How would these changes affect other parts of the budget?

As the authors also point out in Chapter 6, financial management and budget planning can be a challenge for all small business owners and especially for first-time childcare entrepreneurs, who often have experience in the fields of human relations and education but not necessarily in business.
Follow the instructions below to post your response to this Discussion topic.
By Day 3 of Week 3:
Post an explanation of at least two changes you might make to the budget for Rainbow Place (Fig. 6.5 in Chapter 6) if you were the center director, and why. In addition, describe how these changes would affect other parts of the budget. Then, identify at least one resource you might tap if you needed help with budget planning or other business aspects of your child development center.
By Day 7 of Week 4:
Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings. As you read their responses, note those to which you would like to respond with advice, questions, comments, and/or encouragement.
Respond to two or more of your colleagues’ postings in any of the following ways:

Build on something your colleague said.
Explain why and how you see things differently.
Ask a probing or clarifying question.
Share an insight from having read your colleague’s posting.
Offer and support an opinion.
Validate an idea with your own experience.
Expand on your colleague’s posting.
Ask for evidence that supports the posting.

Return to this Discussion in a few days to read the responses to your initial posting. Reflect on what you learned in this activity and/or insights you gained this week.

  Course Project: Idea Feasibility An important part of determining the feasibil

 
Course Project: Idea Feasibility
An important part of determining the feasibility of a new idea involves careful research of what is currently available in the marketplace. Ideas for products and services that will fulfill a specific need or occupy an unaddressed niche have the highest probability of success. However, an innovative idea will not always create a successful business, especially in the long term. There are many other factors to consider when evaluating the feasibility and long-term profitability of the idea behind a potential business venture.
Last week, in Chapter 4 of your textbook, you were introduced to Porter’s Five-Forces of Competition in an Industry (Figure 4-1, p. 77), which provides a framework for analyzing the marketplace in a meaningful way. In this Assignment, you will apply Porter’s analysis to the business ideas you identified in Week 1 to determine the superior choice for a business venture. Next, you will develop a preliminary budget.
For this Assignment:

Using Porter’s Five-Forces Analysis as your lens, research the marketplace for the two ideas you developed. Based on these criteria, which of the ideas is the better option? Write a one-paragraph summary of how and why you selected one option over the other.
Research the potential costs of launching your venture, and use this research to develop a 1-page start-up and marketing budget for your venture. Your budget should account for marketing and development costs as well as pricing for your goods or services and operational costs (lease, payroll, etc.)

By Day 7
Submit your Week 2 Assignment, “Idea Feasibility,” in the online classroom. This Assignment comprises two sections: a summative paragraph and a descriptive paper.
