We all know, every person experiences life differently. Their perspectives are unique to the experiences they have. Those working in the child care industry are no different. Whether they are owners, directors, teachers, or support staff, they all have a unique perspective on the industry. 

Listen in as Caroline and Justina are joined by Maddie and Nick, both from Child Care Biz Help. Each person has a very distinct and very different perspective when it comes to child care and working at a child care center. Together they answer 10 very different, but very important questions in the industry which are listed below-


  1. Some of us have children some older and some brand new and some of us will be considering adding to our families in the future - What would be important to you in a child care center?
  2. What is that challenge that you had working in the industry that maybe you were afraid to take to your boss?
  3. What is your child care deal breaker? If you went to a center and loved everything, but saw or experienced one thing that would prevent you from enrolling..what would it be?
  4. Online presence - what do you look for?
  5. Would reading a bad review, or hearing something negative about a center, deter you touring or enrolling at a center & why?
  6. Best piece of advice you got as a teacher for a classroom?
  7. How do you navigate roles with a co-teacher in a classroom?
  8. Resources in the classroom, Did you know you had them? Did you feel you couldn’t ask for them?
  9. What was/would be your breaking point when it comes to stress and mental wellness & how do you overcome it?
  10.  Is money your deciding factor on where you work?
