Presenter Information

Vernon H. Mason

Primary Presenter Brief Bio

With a $5,000 credit card in 1991, Vernon Mason and his mother opened a small child care center with a capacity of 30 that grew to 125 children. In 1999, it was destroyed by a natural disaster. After rebuilding and starting over, Mason grew WEE SCHOOL Child Development Center to 248 children in just two years. When he turned 40, he purchased three troubled childcare centers in just 12 months. What a midlife crisis! He still wonders why he didn’t have an affair or buy a sports car like everybody else. He is currently the owner of five centers with 100 staff caring for 600 children.

Brief Session Description

Directing a childcare center has its challenges—one of the biggest is hiring and retaining staff. Even when we follow all the proper guidelines in hiring and interviewing, new employees can often turn out to be less than perfect. This workshop will guide a director through the steps of turning a less than acceptable staff member (either new or long-timer) into a valued staff member or learning to setting them free!
