Are you a child care manager ready to expand your business, but not yet ready to expand your facility? In addition to offering half-days and two- or three-day options, there are two very lucrative ways to expand your services to new and existing clients alike.
After School Care
If you have little clients who only attend in the morning, you have extra capacity in the afternoon to welcome school-age kids who need a safe, fun place to go after school. There are many ways to structure your after school program, from a focus on homework time to special activities and workshops. Here are some things to keep in mind!
Most preschool parents continue to work through the summer, and day camps for little one are in high demand. Most camps only last a week or two and parents will place their kids in multiple camps each summer, so make sure their own school is on the rotation! Not only are camps sound business, it’s a great opportunity to keep your families engaged with you through the summer.
You’ll definitely want to check the labor laws in your state regarding bringing on teen help - for example, if you’re a non-profit school, might be able to bring teen helpers as young as thirteen on as volunteers. If you’re a private company, you may need to pay teens sixteen or over for their work. Either way, you’ll create fantastic bonds with some great kids who will never forget the opportunity you gave them!
