Moving Your Daycare From Your Home to a Center by Faith

I started my Family home child care business in 1998. In 1999, my daycare was state licensed and four years later, I was tired of the daycare being in my home.

My home felt like a business and not home, so I needed to make a change!

I thought about opening a center. So, I bought a Child Care Center Management book and to be quite honest, the book prepared me for the administrative side of owning a center.

For several months, I took the time to plan my expansion and I visualized my self owning a center.  In the fall of 2002, I began to look for a building.

I found my first building in November 2002 and we moved in the building on April 1, 2003.

If you desire to move your daycare out of your home, this is the time to activate your Faith!! After all, it is your Faith that will attract what you desire for your Business!!

In fact, this is the time to do something. Start reading books, start looking for that building, get a Business Coach and get prepared for Your Business Expansion..

I know that it is easier to stay in your home. However, if you desire to own a center, then go for it. Are you worried about managing employees? If so, get empowered as you listen to my Art of Owning a Center Audio Coaching series.

 If you take the time to empower yourself, you will Succeed!!

Here are a few suggestions for you:

  1. Keep quiet about your expansion plan until you sign a lease on your building.
  2. Once you find a building, give your parents a notice. In the notice, give them a time line of how long the expansion process will take.
  3. If the children in your home daycare are coming with you, let the parents know if there will be a price increase.
  4. Decide what equipment you will take to your center and what you will sale.
  5. As you expand, you may need to spend time at the center, so decided how you will need an assistant to help you. (inform parents of this plan)
  6. Parents will support your expansion plan, as long as you communicate with them. Business growth is always exciting!
  7. Prepare a Start-up budget.

That was just a few suggestions that I have for moving from a home to a center. For more expansion tips, download my book: Child Care Business Expansion Guide.

Starting Your Child Care Business by Faith

childcare_biz_preview

Do you feel inspired to start a Child Care Business? Not sure how to get started? In fact, I believe that if you desire to start a Business, it is vital that you develop your Faith.

Faith is the Substance of Things Hoped for and the Evidence of things not seen yet. So what is it that you hope for? Faith is also having confidence that you can Do it!

Do you hope for opening a Center? Do you have hope for starting a Home Daycare?

If the Desire is there, Your Faith will empower you to give birth to that Dream of starting a Child Care Business.

Without Faith, it is almost impossible to Build a Business. Moreover, I have found that It was easy to go to my job everyday; knowing that I would get a paycheck every two weeks.

However, when you decide to start you own business, you will be the person creating the paycheck and that takes Big Faith, Motivation, Tenacity and Determination to keep that business going.

Please allow me to share my start-up story with you.

I worked as a Medical Assistant from 1994-1998. I loved my job, however, I wasn’t fulfilled as a Medical Assistant. In fact, I was starting to get very bored.

I was inspired to start a home daycare back in 1998. Furthermore, I was only making $10 an hour and I was having financial difficulties. I knew there was more for me.

While doing my laundry one day back in 1998, I heard the following words in my spirit: Start a Daycare. I knew that God was inspiring me to start a business and I resisted the thought at first. Until, I decided to give my boss a 6 week notice and I quit to start my home daycare.

Today, My home daycare has grown from one center to two locations and I am still focused on growing my Business by Faith!

Leaving my Job 20 years ago, took Big Faith, however, I did it! 

So, if you have a desire to start a Child Care Business and you don’t know where to start, I would love to be your Start-up coach.

Are you ready to start that Child Care Business? Contact me today and let’s talk about how to get started and How to Build Your Faith for Business Success! Click here.
