Hey y'all..

I'm starting a daycare in NYC but have heard that a preschool may be a better thing to go with.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

thanks!

Financially speaking, Pre-School is the new "buzz" product.....

Like it or not.

The only problem I see is the gaining popularity on free Government Pre-School. It has cornered the market here.

Can you compete with free?

It may be different in each state, because Tuesdays where I live pays the provider/teacher for each child in the preschool program as long as it is up to state regulations. The parents do not pay, but attendence is based on income.

here, preschool is free.....and i can't compete with that. so i specialize in infant/toddler. i actually prefer those ages anyway.

I do both.... here preschool is only free for 3.5 hours. So what do the parents do that need all day care for their child? They come to me...lol

I teach during the morning and then offer extended care for the rest of the day. The preschools here do not offer that.
