Why a ‘Large Daycare’ Never Worked for Me *Sigh*

Did you know that opening a large daycare is virtually impossible? Well at least for me. I’ve tried THREE times without success. So to all of you daycare providers out there that were able to make this work for you, I praise you! Child Care Demand There is a demand for child care in my area, Thousand Oaks, California. But, most of my phone calls are for children under the age of two, infants. And even with a large daycare, my max number of infants is four. I always thought licensing should lower the age to under the age of eighteen months. This would open up more infant spots quicker and cut back on the year-long waiting list.

Yes, We Have a National Child Care Provider Day, Let’s Celebrate It!

Did you know we have a National Child Care Provider Day? Also, known as Provider Appreciation Day. This day was started by a group of volunteers in New Jersey back in 1996.
