A day care service for which one has full responsibility is not an easy option. It
requires a combination of sound business sense, the stamina to work long and
irregular hours and the skills required of an employer, together with a respect for
children. Is it intended to start your day care service from scratch or to take over a going concern?
Either way one needs to be certain that there is sufficient support for these
plans. Assess the character of the local community very carefully as well as what
parents are likely to be able to afford to pay. If the location being considered is
densely populated with professional families with dual incomes, then it is probable
that the area will be able to sustain several expensive private day care facilities. On
the other hand, it can be dangerous to assume that because all the facilities already
in existence appear to be booming there is room for one more.
