This is the next installment in our question series. Ok – Do you tell your rates either on the phone or on your website? In particular, post your childcare rates
Is it a good idea to reveal your rates before a tour?
What are the pro’s & cons of telling your rates?
So this week I want to know – post your childcare rates
Do You Post Your Childcare Rates? – and Why or Why Not?
I am sure many providers wonder if they should post their rates or not – so I thought it might be useful to have a post asking it that I can point people to.
It’s a waste of time for the provider and the parent
Kassi Leddige said “No. There are advertising regulations that prohibit from posting rates. Also due to unique needs of my families, some pay more (more hours) and others do not (less hours). I do not want to upset my families.”
Some providers are actually prohibited by regulations from posting rates
Debbie Almaraz Espinosa also said “No. I don’t. I like people to come and meet me and see my center before they put a price to it.”
I have noticed that many daycare centers also do not post their rates on their websites. Like many providers, they probably discuss that during the tour.
What do you think? Do you think childcare providers should post their rates? Do you post your rates? Please leave a comment below.
Looking forward to reading your answers!
Ok, now it’s your turn.
