Default What Makes A Good Location?

Hello everybody,

We're working towards opening a before/afterschool care facility and would love some feedback on what makes a good or great location?

I'm sure this differs amongst people but what are the key attributes parents are looking for?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Close to school or on a school bus drop off route. (check with schools..not all will drop off at a commercial location) want a centralized location where it is easy to get to from different areas since parents are coming from different directions.

Easy in and out parking. Parking off street is better. Personally I prefer multiple parking spots so I don't have to wait if someone pulls in a driveways and parks behind me.

Check with your schools to see if they already offer before/after school care. My school already offers this and has over 100 children registered so having a school with that program in place might not be the best option to be close too.
