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
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.
Ok, let’s say you just heard a knock on the door. It’s your licensing analyst! You panic because you are not ready. Your house looks ok, but your paperwork is all over the place and probably not up to date. Certainly not ready for a childcare licensing visit. I am sure many providers can relate! I know I can!
If you are like most providers, you are busy all of the time. Which is why you might have let somethings go. Now you are on the spot and scrambling. Well, today I’m going to share my process and how I got through my last childcare licensing visit in record time (for me), only 20 minutes. Oh and hang on till the end for a cheatsheet that will keep you ready too.
