When the non-profit agency Childcare Project contacted us, they had several pressing problems. First, they were drowning in paperwork. Many of the essential forms used to meet state requirements were excessive, required unnecessary duplication and drained precious funds better spent on their primary mandate - caring for children.
Further, with no vehicle to properly organize important documents, providers risked legal trouble, loss of funds and even loss of license. Finally, Childcare Project also lacked a high-impact image to increase their visibility in the community and expand their services.
We immediately examined the various forms the agency used on a daily basis. We asked key questions of the staff and put our 25 years experience to use. We recommended several changes which eliminated the waste and inefficiency, which saved the agency thousands of dollars in printing costs.
Next, we recommended a durable accordion style records organizer to maintain each child's important documents. Now, providers faced with an emergency situation have instant access to medical records, parental authorization notices and other crucial paperwork.
Finally, our talented in-house design team went to work on a multi-color, high impact image which the agency could incorporate into all its outreach efforts. This new identity was a huge hit and now adorns all agency letterhead, envelopes, handbooks, business cards, presentation materials and promotional items.
