I stopped taking school agers after my first few months open.

I set myself apart from the other day cares by finding something I could implement that others don't. For me, that is having someone come in a few hours a week to teach Spanish. The kids love it and it is something that start slowly teaching here in Kindergarten. So dcf's feel like they are getting a head start. I also do curriculum and other things, but so do other people.

I am in the process of changing my hours from 7:30-5:30. I have a few grandfathered in. I was open 7-6.

I raised my rates after my initial opening to a higher end rate. I think I'm worth it. I was $125 a week, now I am $160. But clients who were with at a cheaper rate get to keep that rate until they exit my program.
