Over 3,200 respondents in large and small Child care organizations have already participated in a study through the HPO Insight™ improvement tool. These organizations know that improvement and innovation is required to improve performance. The Child care industry is still under strong pressure to improve quality.
The five HPO pillars are made up of 35 validated HPO characteristics. Below, you can find the average scores in the Child care industry:
Quality of Management
Openness & Action Orientation
Continuous Improvement & Renewal
Quality of Employees
Demand is driven primarily by growth in the youth population, and secondarily by employment and income. Recognition of the importance of early education is also driving demand for high-quality care. The profitability of individual child care facilities depends on good marketing, reputation, and efficient operations, as well as how saturated the local market is. Large companies have economies of scale in advertising and administration. Smaller companies can compete effectively in local markets by owning convenient locations.

What is required to innovate, reduce costs, and raise the level?
The HPO Insight™ improvement tool helps Child care organizations to work on performance improvement and innovation in a focused way. New ways of working first require insight into the qualities and challenges of the internal organization. Without motivated employees and progressive leaders, improvement in supply, optimization of processes or change in supply, for example, will not be successful.
Benchmark Child care industry
Over 3,200 managers and employees from the Child care sector have given the scores for the 35 HPO characteristics.

Using HPO Insight™, you can find out how your internal organization is performing regarding these HPO characteristics and HPO factors, and you will receive the Key Improvement Areas (KIAs) for your (part of the) organization. You will also immediately gain insight into your performance compared with the Child care data in our HPO database.
