I was a director this summer of a small center. When we reorganized classrooms/space, I waited until I had it full before opening it. I set a tentative date, advertised for that specific classroom "Eg Doodle dots daycare has openings in the brand new caterpillar room for six two year olds!" we already had people in mind to teach, just called them with a job offer and start date. I did overlap their time some with other classrooms so they got the flow and time to set up the space/invite families to come meet them/see the room, etc. HTH!
