Default Daycare name question

I was wondering how many of you have names for your daycare and if you do, did you get a fictitious? I want to order my business cards but i am not sure whether or not I should wait till i get my fictitious or not.

You should probably wait until you have determined whether the name you want to use is already in use for your state. So, it would be a good idea not to order anything until then. I incorporated my business name and my business is a corporation.

I know some successful family child care porviders who just say use their name like "Carol Smith's Family Child Care" (not real, just an example- the one I do know does this is thinking about changing it though) and some successful FCC's that just encorprate their names with a theme for a fictitious name "Carol's Kid Kingdom" (that's actually a real one in my town) or just a fictitious name like "Muffet babies" (a real one also in my town).

My name is Star (yes, it is my birthname) so I am doing a star theme (even the age groups of children and my preschool program/FCC have star related titles {preschool program name different from offical FCC title}).

It doesn't really matter if you live in a large town with a descent amount of kids and an okay amount of centers/FCC's. But if you live in a small town with a lower population and too many daycare centers and FCC's (like the town I live in) it couldn't hurt to stand out a bit.

Some NON-star related themes (hint, hint. lol jk...but not really lol): Royalty (kings, queens, Prince/sses, knights, crowns), angels, puppies, kittens, bunnies, weather (clouds, sun/ sunshine, moon, snow, rain, rainbows, lightning, day/night), nature (flowers, trees, butterflys, ladybugs, baby bears/lions/ cubs), sea/ocean (dolphins, whales, fish, sharks, coral reef), western/Rodeo, Shapes (hearts and diamonds), toys (teddy bears, dolls, cartoons), or even just children!

If you want to stand out I can think of some cute ones that go well with the name Kimberly (assuming that is your name because of your screen name; unless your name is Sue and you just wanna be called Kimberly lol) just some different ideas and different ways they can be done:

(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Kinderville*
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Kindercare*
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Cool Cats (Initials need to be taken into consideration)
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Cubs (or Kubs)*
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Kingdom for Children
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Coral Reef
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Little Fishes/Fishies
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Aquarium
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Little Angels
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's House of Sunshine
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Rose Garden
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Rosey Kids

+(Miss) is optional, Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberly are different ways you can put your name in the title
*"Miss Kimber's Cubs" is my favorite and "Kimber's Kinderville" or "Kimber's Kindercare" are my second favorite but I understand if you prefer Kimberly over Kimber.

Some more educational souding titles (great if you have a preschool too):
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Early Childhood Academy
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Early Chilldhood Program
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Child Development Program
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Infant/Toddler (and/or) Preschool Academy
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Learning Program
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Little Explorers*
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Little Learners
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Institute of Younger Learning
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Little Developers
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Super Kids*
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Sunshine Academy
(Miss)Kim/Kimmy/Kimber/Kimberley's Funshine Academy*

*My favorites are Miss Kimber's Little Explorers, Kimberley's Super Kids, Miss Kimmy's Funshine Academy
