Top 3 Things That Parents Want From Their Child Care Provider

family reading 2

Over the years I have listened to parents tell me what they really want from a child care provider. In fact, if you listen closely; parents are telling you every day what they really want.

Moreover, when you know what parents want, you will soon find yourself getting more referrals from parents and the parents will not want to go anyplace else!

Today I am going to share with you; 3 things that parents want:

1. They want a safe place for their children. When you plan to provide a safe place for children, this will reduce your number of accident/incident reports and parents will also have a peace of mind when they leave their children with you. Be sure to notify parents of monthly safety checks and inform them when you receive compliance notices from recent license visits. They will brag on you if they know that your program is a safe place! Get more safety tips here, click here

2. Parents want their children to be in an educational environment. Implement a curriculum, post lesson plans, post photos of educational activities that take place in your program on your website or  social media pages and let parents know that you have an educational place for children!

3. They want you to take good care of their children. This includes paying attention to very small details such as: shoes being tied, nose & face clean. Show the parents that you really care about their children. Communicate with parents on a daily basis about their child’s day, such as sharing the following; share something funny about the child’s day with the parent or even give the child a big hug upon arrival.

Whatever you do; show the parents that you really care for their children. “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. ” John Maxwell

4 Keys To A Successful Child Care Business

One of my Business mentors is the Leadership Guru John Maxwell. Reading John Maxwell books, eNewsletters and listening to his audio files has empowered me to grow as a business leader, coach and a writer. Moreover, John Maxwell books has inspired many of my leadership post on this blog and was great inspiration for my  21-Day Master mind eClub.

Less than 24-hours Prior to writing this blog post, I was on a  Toast Masters Call With John Maxwell and thousands of toast master members. Shortly before the Q & A Section of the call, I heard John Maxwell describe the 4 -keys to a Successful business and I could hardly wait to share them with you:

1. Relate well with others

2 Equipping others

3. Having a Positive Attitude

4. Effectively Lead Others

I must say that I agree with John 100%  and I have learned the hard way that building relationships with your relationship with your parents and staff has a major effect on your business; in order for you to have a successful business you must learn to equip your staff; your attitude can either help your business or ruin it and according to John Maxwell, Everything rises and falls on your ability to lead and this is why it is vital that you grow as a Leader.

Keep in mind that John Maxwell is a Leadership Guru and he has been leading others for over 40 years. With that said, I think that we can trust that his 4-Keys to Success formula will work for you too!

To Your Success..
