I know it seems crazy to be talking about saying no to a client. After all, for most providers who are first starting out our sole focus is getting clients not declining them. But just how we have the need to say yes to clients we also need to factor in when no is the correct response as well. So when should you say no?
Have you considered offering Daily Notes for your childcare children? Well, years ago before I started my business when I interned at a daycare center, I was introduced to the practice of writing daily notes. We wrote notes for all of the children in our room. The notes detailed and summarized a child’s day and were provided to the parents at pickup. The notes also helped the care providers to keep up with many routine tasks. Like when diaper changes where needed or when was the next scheduled feeding for a baby.
Now I will not lie, sometimes it did seem like a lot of work those notes. But the parents really seemed to appreciate knowing what their child’s day had been like at daycare. And, like I said, it did help us keep track of the needs of each individual child.
Just about any provider could benefit from developing a library of resources to help build their business. In this post, I want to give you more than a few really good books specifically for building a thriving child care business. So here are some must-have books for growing your child care business.
