Making Tough Business Decisions During The Coronovirus Pandemic

Childcare care center- ahec.edu

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!

7 Steps To Planning For a Successful 2018

If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail…

I can hardly believe that 2017 is almost over!

I don’t know about you, but this has been an amazing Business year for me and I’m already planning for 2018.

Furthermore, as I wrap up the Business year, I must say that if you plan each business week very carefully and get focused; you can accomplish just about anything.

However, as I write this blog post, we are less than 90 days away from a brand new Business year and today I want to inspire you to take some time to reflect.

Most of all, I want to inspire you to plan ahead. As you can see, time goes by very fast and if you want to have a successful year, you must plan for it!

Here are 7  Steps to Planning for a Fun and Successful 2018:

1. Take a moment to reflect on the highlights of your year. Did you celebrate your successes? If not, it’s not too late to celebrate.

2. Did you have any challenges? If so, how did you overcome the challenges? Did you get coaching or seek counsel? What do you plan to do differently next year?

3. Create a plan for 2018. Plan your events with excellence and market your events to your parents.  Do you have a calendar of events that you issue to parents? If not, this is a good time to create one. Issuing a calendar of events for the upcoming year, is a great way to create momentum and get your parents excited about your program. I have attached a copy of my Program Calendar for you to review or to use as a template.

4. Develop a marketing plan for 2018 that includes a social media marketing plan.  Facebook is a very popular social media platform . In fact, according to Facebook newsroom; there are over one billion people on Facebook. Furthermore, I want to inspire you to consider Facebook ads. Facebook ads are as low as $5 and you set the marketing budget.

5. Buy a new Business Book to read. New information will empower you to build a Successful business.

6. Thinking about Expanding ? Don’t think anymore, this is the time to start planning. Check out my Child Care Business Expansion guide.

It’s time to do the work for 2018….
