Default Daycare Name - Help Needed!!

So much for anonymity but this is the best place to turn for suggestions! Admin, can you please delete in a few days?

Please comment with any other ideas you really like that could go with the name play! Or something related to environment, STEM, etc...

Thanks in advance!!

I like Max's Kids

When you say the names of the options you listed as if in conversation most of them are difficult or lengthy and you'll find most parents when asked where or who they use for child care, they will simply answer "Max's" so that's my suggestion.

I am sure it may be different in other areas or states but around here all the newer gals that have these fancy or elaborate child care names all just get referred to by their first names since their daycare names are more complicated....kwim?

I can see having a professional name for business cards etc but even business cards don't seem to be standard for advertising anymore with the ease of FB and other social media coming into play.

So that's my two cents...

I'm with BC on the names. Simpler is better. For a commercial business, sometimes a fancy name is better, but for a personal level one like this, keep it simple.

While Max's Kids is the shortest, maxskids.com is already taken and I emphasize choosing a name that you can register in .com. K12345Kids.com is available.

What are your thought on .com vs .org for a business/preschool Michael?

I purchased both of course but am torn on which to us on printed items (website, business cards, etc.)

Maybe the OP could use the .org for now and sign up for alerts for when the one he wants is available....

Use the .com since most people will instinctly remember a domain name that way. You can always point your .org to the .com. That way you're using both.

Plus, .com, .net, and .org are all used for anything, but .org does still generally imply a non profit organization, while .com implies a business. .com-ercial
If you use .org to advertise, some will think you are running a volunteer or government funded daycare.

We don't delete threads. Is there a post that's needs changing?

Shoot ok. I'm sure it was posted somewhere and I missed it that's my fault. I was hoping to have this up temporary since my last name was in the polls and some comments.

Without deleting the thread, I edited/removed your personal information from both the poll and from the posted replies.
