Fall Decor Ideas

As the month of August comes to an end, I am planning to decorate my Child Care Center with  Fall decor. The Summer was wonderful, however, its time to decorate for the fall!

In fact, I just love the month of September; the weather is not too hot and some days are filled with a cool fall breeze. Furthermore, I love to decorate and change the decor in my Center as the seasons change,

Today I am going to share with you, 3 easy ways to decorate your Child Care Business with Fall Decor.


1. Decorate the outside of your home or center with fall mums. It’s a great way to welcome the parents and children. Be sure to have a watering plan. In fact, watering the mums is a fun chore for the children.


2. Welcome the children and parents with Fall related Bulletin Boards. Adding fall decor to your bulletin boards is a great way to add more color to your childcare program.


3. Don’t forget about the windows. Adding some colorful fall leaves and pumpkins to your windows is a great way to get the attention of cars driving by your home or center. In fact, decorating your windows, gives your childcare business a bit more personality and it just may compel families to stop by.

Valentine’s Day Decor Ideas

During the last week of January 2013, my staff and I changed the decor in the center from Winter to a Valentine’s Day Decor.

As always, I look forward to sharing my ideas with you, so today I am going to share photos of my bulletin boards and Valentine’s day decor photos that I found on my center’s Facebook Page. Also, Pinterest is one of my favorite sites and I will also share with you some of the ideas that I found on Pinterest.  I look forward to reading your thoughts about today’s post.

The bulletin board below is located in the foyer of my center. Parents love to see their children’s names,

so I thought it would be a good idea to add all the children’s names on the hearts.

My sign-in table now has a Valentine’s Day decor. My creative juices were flowing and I spelled out the center’s name on pink and red squares of construction paper to give the bulletin board a nice heading. I only display 3 items on my parent bulletin board: Menu, weekly memo and our calendar of events on the shape of the month.

Here is a closer view of my Parent Bulletin board. Festive yet simple!

I have over 10 years of bulletin board decor and I found this bible verse in one of my decor bags.

“Love Never Fails”

I love it when the children add their touch to the windows!

The parents buy everything that we need for the Valentine’s Day Party. In fact, they love it when we invite them to get involved via a sign-up sheet. Also, one of the parents spilled water on our Valentine’s Day Party Sign-up sheet, so the copy is a little faded. However, I just wanted to inspire you to get parents involved in your child care business.
