An Open Letter To A Fellow Daycare Provider

Dear Fellow Daycare Provider, I’m writing you this letter to “thank you” for your interest in my daycare. It’s not often I get phone calls from local daycare providers and quite frankly it took me by surprise. And with my introvert personality, I ended up being quite vague with you and your questions which I apologized about later in a text message along with filling in the blanks. I was, however, excited to speak with you and share with you some of my daycare’s day-to-day operations, rates, activities, etc. I felt like we had a good conversation between two people, two adults.

A triple play bundle service we were paying up to almost $250/month which included tv, phone, and internet. Originally when we signed up for this plan it cost us an introductory price of $99.95/month and if my memory serves me correctly that was with a two-year contract. Unfortunately, the introductory price is no longer available, and the two-year contract plan is undesirable. So the “more than doubled bill” has got to go. With that came the decision to eliminate our landline. We were paying $44.99 a month (That’s a date night out with the husband!) Pretty insane if you thi...
