Welcome back to Daycare Overhaul - Doing Childcare Better!

Caroline and Justina are so excited to be back for Season 2 of Daycare Overhaul! Listen as they discuss what they have been up to the past few months along with exciting plans for this season of Daycare Overhaul. Be sure to listen carefully and see if you recognize a train, email, alarm and thunder in the background (talk about having to pivot)!

Take notes as they share ways they have seen the industry and clients pivot through this adversity.

As we list potential ways a child care center can pivot, it is important to remember to be open minded, try a variety of things, find what works! Just because it doesn’t work right away, does not mean you cannot gain some traction with a bit of effort. 

Check out our list of potential ways you can pivot below:

  • Offer care to school agers who are doing virtual learning and offer help
  • Consider offering a virtual 4k option
  • Get creative with offering virtual and or hands free tours
  • Work with local business and offer your services to their staff
  • Be flexible with scheduling new or current families
  • Change how you communicate with families since most are not allowed in the building
  • Alter how you show appreciation to your staff
  • Think of creative ways to gather your staff and families to provide safe, social interaction

Taking a look at the above options could not only provide you ways in which you can change how you currently do business, it could also alter the way you do business going forward, once the public health crisis diminishes.
