It’s Time to Change How We Do Business!

1378884_10203583732824100_1697272836321419097_n Several hours before writing this blog post, I took a trip to the Grocery store and to the Post office.

In fact, As I began to check out at the grocery store, I noticed there was tape on the floors to promote social distancing between each customer and I saw COVID 19 signs all over the store. Then I thought, COVID 19 has truly changed How we Do Business! 

Seeing  all those yellow signs all over the store and yellow tape on the floor inspired me to think about what I needed to do differently to protect my employees, children and staff.

Then after leaving the grocery store, I went to the post office and I saw red tape on the floors and plexiglass in front of the help counter. When I saw that plexiglass, I thought: that’s a great idea.

So, I immediately called my husband and I asked Him if He could install  some hanging plexiglass in front of our receptionist desk at our center to protect the health of our office staff.

I don’t know about you, but I’m convinced that we cannot continue doing business as usual. In fact, this is the time to implement new practices that will reassure your parents that you care about their well being and their health. Most of all, you must protect your very own health as well.

My center closed for 2 weeks and while we are closed, I have been thinking of ways to prevent the spread of germs during this COVID 19 Pandemic.

We have a upcoming summer camp and I’m wondering how this pandemic is going to affect where we go on field trips. Furthermore, I am already considering having a private preschool graduation with just the kids and staff and go Live on Facebook for the families to see our ceremony.

Whatever you decided to do, please remember to keep the health and wellness of your families in mind.

I would like to ask you a question? What have you decided to do differently to prevent the spread of the COVID 19 virus? Please share below.

I look forward to your response.

Making Tough Business Decisions During The Coronovirus Pandemic

As I consulted with one of my coaching clients the day before I wrote this post, I was reminded that Child Care Providers all over the world are faced with making lots of decisions that will have a major impact on the lives of families, including:

  • Deciding whether or not to open or close their business.
  • Staffing challenges because some teachers are concerned about catching the Coronovirus.
  • Families may unenroll their children if you close your business
  • Some families are working from home and your enrollment is low

I’m aware that there may be other situations that I may have not included , however, I just wanted to take the time today to say this: Do whatever is best for those families that you serve.

As a Center Owner, I decided to leave my center Open for those families that need our services and my staff are happy that we are open. The parents that work from home, stay in touch with us and I use social media to inspire and inform our families.

Most of all, if you choose to stay open during this Coronovirus  pandemic, be sure to do all that you can to prevent the spread of germs including:

  • Checking temperatures upon arrival
  • Having children to wash hands upon arrival
  • Limiting access to only allowing parents to pick up their children.
  • Requiring everyone that enters your home or center to wash hands upon arrival.
  • Sanitize/ Disinfect all surfaces touched by kids, parents and staff daily.
  • Do not allow sick children, parents or staff to enter your home or center.

Furthermore,  this Caronovirus Pandemic has truly revealed the fact that Child Care Providers are truly needed.

In fact, our first Responders, Nurses, Doctors, Business Owners, Grocery Store workers and many other professionals depend on us right now.

Thank you for all that you do for Young Children and their Families.

Much Success to you!
