      Did You Know ?

      That there is a big demand for daycare. Over 50% of children under five years of age, are cared for by someone, other than their parent.  

      Thinking about starting your own daycare? Now is the time to start your own daycare! The demand for child care is on the rise. Many experts expect to find more mothers, will be outside their home working, due to inflation and to the high divorce rate. And i'm sure you will agree that one pay check just doesn't go as far as it used to.

      How many children can you watch? You can usually start out watching two children plus your own until you get licensed. Once you become licensed you can generally watch between six and twelve children. The requirement for how many children you can watch often depends on how much space you have, the ages of the children and if you are watching the children by yourself or with a helper.

      What is the best way to advertise my daycare? The best way to advertise your daycare is by word of mouth. You need to let all your freinds and neighbors know that you are now "taking on children" to watch in your home daycare. It doesn't take long for people to notice you are watching children and slowly the word will spread that you are now running a daycare. Im sure you will agree that having a freind tell you "Mary is now running a daycare you should call her"is the best way to attract more customers. But what if that isn't enough? We have a lot of useful information in our daycare guide on advertising and attracting more customers. Once you read our chapter on advertising im sure you will think to yourself, Oh! I need to do this right now! I can't believe I never though of that!

      What About Toys & Equipment? Check out yard sales and second hand shops If you do not have any toys or books on hand that you can use then you should "Start Now" checking out yard sales, garage sales and second hand shops or second time around stores for toys and baby equipment. Some items to watch for would be:

      Books & Small Toys
      Playpens or Pack & Plays
      High Chairs
      Changing Table
      Child Sized Table and Chairs
      Outside Slide for your daycare
      Felt Board
      Chalk Board
      Plus any other items you see that you feel you will need for your daycare

      What About New Items? When your daycare starts bringing in a nice income then you may want to buy some newer equipment and toys. But if you want to save money, you should still try and find most of the items that you need from the second hand stores. Or you may want to shop around and see what you can find on sale, check out the sale flyers, search on the internet. Another solution would be to put up a note (Please Donate) on your front door of items that you need for you daycare, some of your daycare parents may have these items at home and are no longer using them.

      Starting A Daycare

      Start Your Own Daycare e-Book

      How long does it take to get licensed? Getting a license can be a long and stressful procedure. Our start your own daycare e-book will guide you through the steps and will help you get your license quickly. Our start your own daycare e-book has a lot of useful information, including:

      Is there a need for daycare in my area?
      Who do I call to get my daycare application?
      How many children can I watch?
      How much do I charge?
      How do I advertise?
      What kinds of toys do I need?
      Our daycare guide will answer these questions and many others!

      How Much Should I Charge ? First you need to decide what ages and what hours you are going to work? Depending on the hours you decide to work and the ages you decide to watch will help you to decide what to charge. The first thing you would need to do, is to find out what others in your area are charging. Our daycare guide will help you figure out what to charge your daycare clients for daycare.

      Daycare  Flyer - All forms are included in the start your own starting a daycare package

      Daycare Flyer

      Can I Find Customers ? Once you get licensed you will need to start attracting customers! A great way to advertise your daycare is by displaying a flyer in your neighborhood, just hang up at the laundry mat, doctors office, grocery stores, libray, and at the mall. I have three cute flyers available for down load in our daycare forms, just write your phone number on the bottom of the flyer. There are three different flyers on our down load page to print out and use. If you have MS Word, Works or WordPerfect, you can just click the words on the flyers to edit them.

      Brochure Side 1 Brochure Side 2

      Brochure Side 1   And   Side 2

      Marketing Your Daycare Print out the brochure above and send to prospective clients. The picture above shows both the front and back side of the daycare brochure. Just print out the brochure and tri-fold it, there is a blank area on side one to put in the mailing address. This is a great way to advertise your daycare. The start your own daycare guide will help you advertise your daycare with lots of valuable information on advertising and marketing your daycare.

      Parent Interviews ? Over The Phone And In Person Your first encounter with a potential daycare parent will probably be over the telephone. This will be their first impression of you. Make sure you sound confident. You can print out the telephone interview log and have it next to the telephone when parents call. Just read down through the questions and write down their answers. If this goes well, you will need to set up a time to meet with the parents. Make sure you set up a convient time for both of you!

      What Type Of Program Do You Have?? Most parents will want to know, what will my child be doing all day? Most parents do not want their child sat in front of the television. Most parents want a fun, safe, environment but at the same time they want their child envolved in a home daycare program which teaches them and guides them through their early stages of development. Most parents want their child getting outside, having free play, plus getting ready for school. You may want to think about starting a morning program to help teach the children in your care. The start your own daycare e-book does offer information on games and activites that you can do with your daycare children. For more advanced activities please see below:

      Toddler or Preschool Curriculum I also offer a toddler or preschool curriculum program. Which is sold seperately.

      Daycare Contract

      What About Daycare Forms ? You should have a contract and all your daycare policy's available for each parent. Before you begin watching children in your home, you should have a contract, a parents handbook, permission slips for taking the children on field trips, in your car for errands, medical emergency forms, plus others. You should have a parents handbook which will point out all your policies and procedures. I have a well written parent's hand book you can use or edit to fit the needs of your daycare.

      Hours Sign - Daycare Form

      Daycare Hours Sign

      What Are Your Daycare Hours? Post your daycare hours. Make sure eveyone knows what time you open and close. The cute poster above can be printed out from the daycare forms down load page and hung where everyone can see it. Just fill in the time you open and close with a marker.

      Conflicts ? Our starting a daycare package will point out ways to handle conflicts. When problems do arise you will be glad you have a parents handbook pointing out your procedures and policys. This will usually stop a lot of problems before they begin. Getting along with the parents can be one your biggest issues. I have learned that many problems can and will arise between the provider and the parent(s). If parents realize ahead of time what your rules and procedures are then you can stop some conflicts before they start. Once they read through your handbook they will have a greater understanding of your philosophies and what your rules are. The handbook covers other issues such as a sick child, holidays, toilet training, bounced checks, late payment, and so much more.

      Parent's Handbook

      Can I edit the parent's handbook? Yes, you can edit the parent's handbook, the contract and most of the other daycare forms. You can not edit the poster type forms, such as the center signs. Once the starting a daycare package is purchased you can instantly down load our parents handbook along with the daycare contract PLUS a ton of other forms. You can edit the parents handbook to change the hours of your operation, the prices that you charge, or any other pertinent information that you would like to add or change. On the daycare forms down load page, you will find information for printing out the parents handbook cover and the parents handbook and putting these all together to make the handbook.

      Daycare Records? Keeping your records straight can be a nightmare. I have learned some simple tricks to keep our records easily organized and I will show you how to easily organize your daycare records. You need good bookkeeping forms to help you organize your daycare records. I have some really nice bookkeeping forms to keep you organized. You do not have to be a bookkeeper to keep accurate records and to be organized. I will show you how to achieve this. Our starting a daycare package has a wealth of information. Lots of tips on dealing with parents, discipline, early or late arrival, plus information on how to run your program smoothly, to keeping all your records organized.

      Children's Files? Set Up A File Folder For Each Child You will need to organize your daycare records for each of the children. You should have a file folder for each child, and keep all their information inside each one. Our starting a daycare package will show you how to set up a file folder for each child. Just print out the file folder index and glue inside each file folder, the rest of the instructions are on the daycare forms down load page. When the licensor comes to your house you want to be able to produce the children's records and have them all up to date. You do not want to be running all over the house looking for them. Your state licensor can pop in at any time and you do not always know when their coming. Our starting a daycare package will give you tips on how to keep the children's records all up to date and how to store the records so you can easily find them.

      Emergency Telephone Numbers? Print out the emergency telephone numbers daycare form. Once you purchase our starting a daycare package, you can print out our emergency telphone numbers form plus many other useful forms. If a child gets hurt you don't want to be "thinking, where did I put his file". You should know instantly where each childs record is and how to quickly locate each childs telephone number and his parents work number. If an emergency comes up, you may not have time to "hunt for records" you will need to be organized and know where everything is. Our starting a daycare package will give you tips and information on becoming organized.

      What about disclipine? Our starting a daycare package will go over positive guidance Children are going to act up during the day or they wouldn't be normal. You need to make sure the children are not going to hurt themselves or someone else. But you do not want to yell or over react to the children. You need to teach them through positive reinforcement. Guide them with positive actions. Our daycare guide will go over positive discipline to help you learn how to approch the children when they are standing on chairs, throwing sand, running inside, hitting, etc.

      Art Area

      Art Center Sign

      What Are Learning Centers? Learning Centers are usually a small area of your house or a small box or shelf where you have placed certain items for a specific area of learning. Such as; placing books on a shelf, this would be your book area or book center. A center can be a large area such as your outside play area or a small area such as a dish pan set up with some art items and set up on a small table, this would be your art area or art center. Some people set up shelves and designate certain areas on the shelves for certain learning areas. You may want a math area to help teach the children how to to count, or have them learn to sort or have them learn other math activities or a pre reading area where you would place some alphabet cards or a sound box or other pre reading activities. "Quality daycare's" have learning centers or area's set up for the children. These centers don't have to be anything bigj ust a small area where you will keep some books, and another area where you will keep some blocks. If you notice most of the time that the children crawl up on the couch to look at books then place a few books in a small stand by the couch and this will become your book center. Most home daycares have a block center, art center, music center, book center, dramatic play center, and a few others which are discussed in our starting a daycare e-book. Our starting a daycare e-book will go over each center and different items you can place into each center. I also have center signs that you can print out and display to show your parents where each center is located in your home. One of the center signs is displayed above, this is the art center sign.

I will be using your advise to help me get started. I recommend this package to anyone starting a daycare. The information in this kit is very useful."

      " I was quite skeptical about an electronic book. I couldn't believe how fast your e-book arrived. I love all the forms!! These are great. I am also able to go at my own pace! Thank you so much for making this available online!."
