Default Just Got My First Clients!

I received my license back in April after spending a year getting my space ready and I am excited that I have my first two clients that will be starting in September! I have an 8 month old little guy and a 3 year old little girl, plus my own 1 year old daughter. I am leaving behind a stable job in Boston to do this that I have dreamed of for years and I am excited and terrified! I think this forum is going to be such a blessing!

Congrats!! I am also just getting started and am hoping to open in September after Labor Day. My biggest frustration is trying to get some older kids since the infant spots are taken so fast.

Good luck with everything!!!

You'll find this forum very useful. I'm not even in the business yet and this forum has been helpful for me to work on getting ready.

Hello , It can be scary I left my fulltime job in march to work in my home daycare full time. The one thing that I missed about working at the daycare center is the comraderie i had with my colleagues. this forum is encouraging when I feel like giving up and going back to work.
