Default Starting at Home Preschool

Hello! I am thinking about starting an in-home preschool program just three days a week. Has anyone done this? Did you have a hard time finding students? What rate did you charge?

Preschool is free in public schools, churches and franchise centers here so it is not a viable option.

The market that is exploding here is adult education hours, 5-10 pm, two to three days per week. Dinner and evening snack provided, preferred.

In my area, unless you were a licensed teacher, you would have trouble filling up. Even if you are, you might have trouble. People need all day care and our local schools provider before and after care or bussing to daycares. Many parents leave daycares that have state approved curriculum to go to the schools. What's currently available in your area?
