Inspirational and Empowering Child Care Business Owners To Build Successful Child Care Businesses

imagesCATF3502During the month of April, I plan my entire Summer Field trip Schedule. In fact, my field trip schedule for the preschoolers and the School-age children are slightly different.

The School-age children go on field trips every day and the preschoolers go on a field trip every other week. I plan daily field trips for the School-age children because they get bored being indoors all day and they need some time away from the program.

However, preschoolers need more supervision on field trips and I believe the liability is greater to take preschoolers on field trips every day.

So, here is what I recommend that you do before planning field trips:

  1. Create a field trip policy for your Summer Camp and train your staff on your policies.
  2. Places that you can take the School-age children every week include: The local park, Library, Free movie Camp and visit a local attraction. (For at least 1-2 hours a day)
  3. Plan to take the preschoolers on a field trip every other week and invite parents to join you, to assure adequate supervision.
