Default Help With a Name!

Hi! I've been doing daycare for the past 2 years but just started getting serious about it now that all my kids are out of the infant stage. Which is why I finally registered. Nice to meet you.

As far as business names, I'm down to Just Peachy Childcare or Dandy Daycare. I like the way Just Peachy sounds better, (it's a phrase my dad uses all the time, kind of a family joke) but the Dandy Daycare "Dandelion" theme is more aesthetically appealing for me as far as cards, blogs, signs, and fliers go.

So...

Just Peachy! Childcare
Just Peachy Childcare
Dandy Daycare

I voted dandy daycare because of the dandelion things you could do for business cards and things. Also, your dcks could be your little flowers or sprouts. So cute!

Dandy daycare because its closer to the beginning of the alphabet and clients always search from the top of the list.

Thumbs up

Are you going to have a peach or dandilion theme/decoration/art work? Those are cute themes.

I like "Just Peachy" but have you thought maybe:
"Peachy Keen (child care)"? (for a cute retro sounding feel)

or something more serious but still pretty sounding like:
"Peach Creek Child Care"
Peach Brook Child Care
Peach Tree Child Care
Peach Beach Child Care.

The only problem I have with 'Dandy Daycare' is it sounds too close to "Daddy Daycare"- some people might be confused. Maybe something like
"Dandililly Daycare"
"Daffadilly daycare" (if you did daffidills) (sounds fun and catchy)
"Dandilly Daffadilly Daycare" (really cute and catchy)
or
"Dandelion Garden Daycare".
But remember that Dandelions are still weeds so that might turn some people off (though most people do say that kids 'grow like weeds')

or you could be totally random and combind it to:
"Just Peachy Lil' Dandies Daycare"
or "Peachy Lil' Dandies Daycare"

But out of what you picked I like 'Just Peachy' because it is also a calming color- so that could be your color sceme.

I like Peachy Keen too!

For me "just peachy" was a sarcastic comment my mom always made when things were not going well so I associate with that and its hard for me to get past as I picture her saying it every time i read it. because of that bias I voted Dandy.

I like Just Peachy Childcare but Dandy Daycare has a nice ring to it. Both of these names are available: JustPeachyChildcare.com and DandyDaycare.com

Make sure you registered one ASAP.

Where can you register a name?

I really don't like "daycare", I'm caring for children- NOT days!

Not to bash or anything
Just my opinion......

I like the dandelion theme idea for Dandy Daycare but I voted for Just Peachy. You can still do the cutesy peach theme and have the kids be your little peaches. I think seeing just the name in writing is more aesthetic than Dandy Daycare because without seeing a picture of a dandelion all I can think of is the phrase "Just dandy!" Perhaps that's another idea for a name?

I mean no disrespect, but I've always had an aversion to the word peach. My mom used it as an alternate name for female genitalia. I know many many others who are the exact same
IMO I don't think anything involving children should have any resemblance to a private bodily area :S I have never eaten a peach since, and looking at them creeps me out

I am dying laughing at this being a reason to not use the name "Peach". I've never heard that ever but then again my peer group uses the proper names for genitalia.

I vote Peachy Keen Childcare
