Things to Consider
What type of daycare is Precious Beginnings Preschool?
It is a Group Day Care Home. That means it is a state licensed facilty providing childcare for no more than 12 children at a time. There are also three additional types of daycare:
- Family Day Care Home – A state licensed single caregiver who is providing care for up to 6 unrelated children in their home.
- Day Care Center – State licensed facility providing care for 7 or more children.
- Nursery School – Pennsylvania Department of Education licensed part time preschool facility.
How was the location chosen?
The location was chosen because it is:
- Located 1 block from three different bus routes, and is just 4 blocks from the subway.
- Across the street from a playground.
- Well lit with lots of large windows and 12 foot ceilings.
- Offered an opportunity to have an open classroom.
How did you get the word out about your new business?
A lot of different advertising mediums were used:
- An advertisement was placed in the local neighborhood paper. Since the distribution was limited to a specific area of the city, the cost was lower. Also, it was a good way to reach the target audience.
- Flyers were placed in mailboxes within a five block radius.
- Flyers were passed out in the city’s business district.
- A sign was placed next to the building.
- A sign was placed on the building.
