Default New Provider

I'm starting a daycare in my home next month! I just had my initial visit from the county to grant my license.

I've been lurking on this site since I began this process and came across it. I'm happy to join now that I will be a provider.

Thank you! I read your bio and ours are very similar. Due to budget cuts, I am a former teacher also. I also have the best toddler son anyone could ask for.

I love still being able to teach everyday. My 5 year old started Kindergarten and gets out at 1:50 so my home child care allows me to be home for her and be the teacher to my 3 year old (which somedays I'm not sure that was a good idea lol). Have you started advertising yet? It's probably a good idea to start if you haven't so maybe you'll have kids starting on opening day!

Thank you for the welcome and upgrade.

I started advertising through friends and family with a referral bonus. I didn't do any official advertising before without my license, but now I am beginning to post fliers and look into other forms of getting the word out.

Hoping things go well in the next few months and I can build up my clientele.
