How To Operate Your Home Daycare Like A Center

I have found that most family home childcare providers choose not to expand their businesses away from their home. In fact, it has been my discovery that only a small majority of Family home Child Care providers will choose to expand, because they are simply tired of their businesses being in their home and they are ready to operate a larger business.

However, most family home providers that I meet, are content with having a daycare in their home. It took me quite some time to accept the fact that many home providers may not expand their businesses and that is why I decided to write this blog post: How to Operate your home daycare like a center.

I believe that family home child care providers should operate their businesses as if it were a center. Furthermore, I believe that if you run your Home Daycare like a center, the parents will view your family home child care business as a school or a center.

When I was a home provider, my parents called my daycare a school, because when they entered my home, it looked like a center and I ran my home daycare as if it were a center.

Today I want to share with you 5 things that you can do to start operating your Family Home Child Care Business Like a Center:

1. Choose to operate an in-home preschool and not just a daycare. Check out my article: How to create a Quality in-home preschool Classroom in your home.

2. Hire trained professionals to assist you with your home daycare

3. Develop policies and put them in written form for parents to follow.

4. Require that parents pay their tuition on time and be consistent. (Try my makeover your tuition policy ecourse)

5. You must think like a Center Owner!  Discover how a center owner thinks by downloading my Directors handbook and my Art of owning a Child Care Center ebook.

3 Things That You Must Do As You Grow or Start-up Your Business

It always seems impossible, until it is done. ~Nelson Mandela

 

In 2013, I declared that 2014 would be the year that I would grow my Business. In fact, the opportunity to expand came to me in August 2014.

When the opportunity to expand presented itself  to me, I was very hesitant to look at the building. However, I knew that if I did not go look at the building; I just might miss my opportunity.

In a previous blog post, I shared with you that I signed the lease to my new location on October 1, 2014. Moreover, twenty-two days into the expansion I realized this: If I want to take my business to another level, I must do the following:

  • Work on my mindset
  • Have laser like focus
  •  Change my words

Do you desire to grow your Child Care Business in the near future? Are you thinking about starting a Child Care Business?

If so, I want to share with you three steps that you must take, in order to develop a growth mindset:

1.Work on Your Mindset. Your mindset will either help or hinder your Business Success. In fact, your mindset has brought you to this point in your Business. So, if you want to do something different or bigger; you must think on a different level.

How do you get a different mindset? Read personal development books, attend Business seminars, hang around people who think bigger than you, watch personal development or Business Success videos on YouTube. Your Business will only rise to the level of your mindset. It’s time to think on a different level!!

2. You must have…. Laser like Focus. As you are growing your Business, there will be distractions and it is vital that you plan your time effectively. You can plan your day effectively by creating a daily or weekly to do list for your Business Growth or Start-up.

If you do not plan your time well; you will waste time and have many unproductive days. As of September 1, 2014, I created a  90-day expansion plan and I have very little time to waste. So every day, I focus on 3 top priorities until the tasks are complete.

3. Change Your Words. God has created us all with the power to shape our lives with our words. I challenge you to choose your words carefully as you grow or start-up your Business. I have seen the positive and the negative effects from the words that I have spoken out of my mouth. That is why, I challenge you to speak words of growth, increase and blessings over your Business.

If you feel the need to complain, sing a song or cover your mouth. Negative words will only hinder your Business Growth or Start-up process. Whatever you want to see manifest in your Business, that is what you want to speak out of your mouth.

Much Success to you and I look forward to reading your thoughts and comments below,

Shiketa
