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

I invited a group of ladies to attend my Doing Business by Faith Prayer Circle on Saturday March 11, 2017. My Child Care Business Journey has been fun and came loaded with lots of challenges. However, I have learned from my challenges and I look forward to inspiring other Business owners with my story.

At the Prayer Circle I shared my Start-up Story and by my surprise my daughter captured a Video of my talking about how my poor credit score had an impact on the amount of money that banks would lend me. Moreover, I made the best out of what the banks and local lenders gave me and moved forward by Faith.

Watch the video now and I look forward to your feedback below.

This video clip is only a 5 minute clip of my Expansion challenges, however, I have expanded successfully several times and I wrote a book about how to effectively expand a Child Care Business.

If you desire to expand, I want to invite you to check out my Child Care Business Expansion Guide.

Getting parents to follow my rules was not always easy for me. In fact, when I first opened my Child Care Business, parents were my #1 Challenge. Not any more!

Furthermore, I have discovered how to build a healthy relationship with my parents  and I also believe that you can to!

Moreover, I believe that parents will have respect for your rules when you do the following:

1. Upon enrollment, you must take some time to go over your program policies with your parents and issue a Parent handbook. Do not trust that parents will read the entire handbook, so be sure to discuss the policies  that will affect parents on a weekly basis such as: tuition, sick policy, etc.

2. Post very important reminders where parents can see them daily and update posted signs regularly.

3. Be courteous and Polite when you are in a position where a parent is trying to challenge your policy. For example. I had a parent to ask me to apply skin cream on her child. I told her that my policy stated that parents must provide a Doctor statement or a prescription for skin cream. She tried to debate the policy, however, I told her, if she gets a statement or a prescription from her child’s Doctor; I would apply the skin cream. She said, OK! Mrs. Morgan.

Be consistent, flexible when you can, and Be professional. Parents will follow your rules, if they know that you are serious about them too. After all, you made your rules for a reason, so enforce them.

I have also discovered that some parents may not respect your rules at all and this is when you must make a decision to deal with that parent or not.

Much Success to you!
