Anyone have childcare experience? Either owner or experienced coordinator for a large facility? We’d love some input outside the generic.

My wife ran a daycare out of our home for 25 years. She has prepared a summary of how she managed her business that I can send to you. slmathews99@gmail.com

Hi Amy,

Thanks so much for your question! I've worked as a childcare provider myself for over 12 years, it's definitely a rewarding (and exhausting) job!

I don't have personal experience running a large facility, but I was able to find a few insightful articles for you.

This is a 69 page PDF document from the US Small Business Administration, it looks like it gives some really great information. https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/files/pub_mp29.pdf

Finally, have you utilized our community feature on this website? If you head the the community tab, you can search for advisors with the experience you're looking for. You can reach out to them directly to ask questions and have a conversation about experiences.

LinkedIn might also be a great place to look!

Best of luck as you get your business running, and feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

Best,
Jessica
