More Inspiration to Get Organized

(This post was previously published in 2012)

Are you ready for more organizational tips and ideas? This week, I thought I would inspire you with some photos to give you some organizational ideas.

As I have mentioned before; I can be a bit anal when it comes to classrooms being organized. However, I must confess that I am still working on organizing my office.

Moreover, I feel that the children’s play space is the first thing that parents see and I wanted to inspire you to get your classrooms and play space organized by sharing these photos with you.

This bulletin board caught my attention. It looks very organized and it inspires parents to take a look at the posted information.

You really do not need much in a bathroom other than soap, tissue, paper towels, sinks, toilets and according to this restroom…a little color! Love the colors in this bathroom.

Have you been inspired to get your classroom space, parent sign-in area, bulletin boards and other spaces in your program organized? If so, how has this post inspired you and what do you plan to get organized in your childcare business?

7 Ways To Get Dads Involved in Your Child Care Program

Over the years, I have noticed that it is easier to get the mothers involved in my program. In fact, it seems like the dads prefer that the moms get involved. However, after holding a Donuts with Dads event at my childcare facility and watching the effect that the event had on the children, I have decided to inspire the Dads to get more involved in my facility.

Today I am going to share with you 7 ways to get the dads involved in your program:

  1. Get to know your dads by talking with them on a regular basis
  2. Ask dads for their opinion about program events or policies
  3. Invite dads to host an annual car wash to help raise funds for your program
  4. Dad love sports, so be sure to plan sports related days such as: baseball cap day,etc.
  5. Host a super bowl event for dads at your facility
  6. Ask dads to donate male related items for the dramatic play area(s)
  7. Invite the dads to come by your home or center to talk with the children about their profession

This is just a small list of ways to get the dads involved in your program. Moreover, I believe that when dads get involved in your program, that it will compel more single dads to bring their children to your program and the kids will be so proud of their dads!

Do you have any ideas on how to get dads involved? Feel free to share!

With Dads in Mind,

Shiketa
