During a workshop years ago I remember the instructor stating how surprised he was that the providers were so willing to share with each other I don’t know about the other providers in the room, but I wasn’t surprised. There are so many reasons we should think of each other as collaborators instead of competitors. I guess that’s why so many of us do form relationships with colleagues. So today I want to talk about what might seem the most unlikely of friendships. I will show you how turning the competition into collaborators can not only help you grow your business but also develop a community of colleagues you can turn to as well. childcare competition into collaborators
As child care providers, we are masters at repurposing and finding budget-friendly items for our childcare spaces. Even though as childcare owners we can really appreciate a bargain, we also need durable products for our childcare. Items that won’t break down after the first 5 kids that get hold of them. Ikea Items for Childcare
Which is why today I want to share with you quite a few budget-friendly, but well made, Ikea products that are perfect for childcare settings. During a recent trip, I found
nine ten Ikea products that are perfect for childcare and won’t break the budget either. Wait till you see what all 10 totaled! This list will have you running to Ikea this weekend.
Most providers would probably say that they want their childcare to have a “wow” factor. To wow, parents and at the same time inspire the children they care for. In my mind that happens best in a well-designed childcare space. Inspiring Childcare Spaces
So when I took an unbiased look at my space I realized it had lost some of that wow. Yep, it needed an update. But I needed some inspiration for what it should transform into. Inspiring Childcare Spaces
When it comes to looking for inspiration, these days no one has to look any further than Pinterest. The same was true for me when I was looking for inspiration for my childcare space. So today I thought we would look at more than a few inspiring childcare spaces. Find out what we like and maybe even discover a few things we can adopt for our own spaces. Here’s a look at 5 inspiring childcare spaces.
