The saying goes that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Well, when we are talking about your new day care business that one step is to have a well formed day care business plan in place before you begin working on getting the business started. Having a solid business plan, even though your day care business will more than likely be home based, is important for many different reasons. Because opening a day care business is different than babysitting in your neighborhood, you will need to have everything ready for any visits from the inspectors and having everything up to code. Here is what a basic day care business plan should contain.
First you should be able to tell, from your business plan, what your profit will be for the business. This will help you to get any necessary funding. You should also list, on your private business plan, any improvements that will need to be done in order to bring your establishment (usually your home) up to par with local codes for child care. You can also include some documentation of the need for additional child care in your area. Having a short range and a long range business plan is necessary so that you are able to see, at a glance, what your startup costs will be and when exactly you expect your business to turn a profit.
It's important to have a solid business plan for your new day care business and to have it professionally done so that you can present it to the proper people in order to obtain funding and to get any licenses necessary to start your new daycare business.
