Many Child Care providers choose to either operate a home daycare or manage one center. However, if you desire to manage multiple locations, this blog post is written just for you.

In 2003, I had a dream to manage multiple locations. In fact, I saw my Child Care Business being a chain of facilities. I didn’t know how I would start-up multiple locations, so I began to study major child care chains.

My dream became a reality in 2016! In April 2016, I was presented with the opportunity to open a second location. Furthemore, I currently have plans to open a 3rs location in Atlanta.

When the opportunity was presented to me, all I could think about was my dream of having multiple locations. Then I started to doubt the idea. In fact, I have discovered that when your mind is not familiar with an idea, thoughts of self doubt or sabotage will manifest.

If you have a dream of owning multiple locations, I want to share with you: 7 Faith building tips and business skills that will prepare you for your Dream:

  1. Write down your dream of owning multiple locations. (Post it where you can see it daily)
  2. Talk about your Dream. Your words will attract what you need for the dream.
  3. Read books written by Successful Business Owners that have built major brands or simply study someone that has owned multiple locations.
  4. Get rid of any negative thinking. In fact, negative thinking will only hinder your business success.
  5. Work on creating systems in your Current facility that can be easily duplication in all of your centers.
  6. Create a Business expansion Plan and share it with your Staff. Employees want to be apart of a growing company !
  7. Don’t rush the process. It took my dream over 10 years to become a reality. Yours may not take that long, however, Business growth is worth the wait!

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.
