Providing child care is one of the most rewarding jobs a person can have. Not only are you enriching the lives of children, but you are also providing an invaluable service to parents who are returning to work or school. If you are ready to move beyond babysitting and nannying and start your own professional child care business, we want to help.

Parents have multiple options when it comes to daycare solutions for their children. They can hire a private nanny, place their child in an in-home daycare, or enroll their child in a curriculum-based child care center. The latter of these options are typically the highest regulated, but they can also be the most beneficial for children and attractive for parents looking to give their little ones the best start in life.

Daycare Owner Business Consulting

Here at Toddler Town, we pride ourselves on being one of the best child care centers in Chicago. Toddler Town has been family-owned and operated for over two decades. During that time, we have grown our child care center to two thriving locations and have gained multiple accreditations. This includes the coveted National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), a status awarded to less than 10 percent of all preschools and early childhood programs. In short, we are committed to not only the health, safety, and happiness of the children who walk through our doors every morning but also to their intellectual development.

In addition to the child care services that we provide, we are also thrilled to offer child care consulting services for child care business owners or potential business owners. During our years of owning and operating a successful child care center, we have a vast knowledge of the intricacies of this industry and stay up to date with best practices early childhood education, making us an excellent resource to anyone looking to grow their career as a child care business owner.

  • Seminar and large-group speaking
  • On-site assessments and coaching

Owning and operating a daycare center is more than simply providing care to children. There are so many behind-the-scenes aspects that need to be managed to keep your daycare center successful, keep your employees happy, and most importantly, keep your child care center safe. Some of the business and management aspects that Angelo can provide coaching and consultation services for include:

  • Managing a daycare center, including enrollment, tuition, attendance, health and safety records, billing records, payroll, and human resources support for staff
  • Maintaining records for each individual child, including medical information, immunization records, releases, parent information, emergency contacts, and service contracts
  • Preserving records of all services provided, licensing and registration, background checks, qualifications, and credentials pertaining to training, degrees, and certifications of staff
  • Ensuring your daycare center has, at minimum, full compliance with all licensing and safety regulations. Beyond this, Angelo can provide coaching on achieving additional accreditations, such as the NAEYC accreditation
  • How to train, recruit, and supervise staff, student teachers, teaching assistants, and all other personnel who will be working directly with children
  • Evaluating teachers, classrooms, and other staff regularly to ensure excellence
  • Integrating technology into the classroom including iPads, classroom computers, and electronic communication with parents and caretakers
  • Developing age-appropriate daycare curriculum and lesson plans to meet the needs of all students in your care
  • Planning safe, educational, and interactive activities and outings for students

Here at Toddler Town, we will only be able to enrich the lives of a very small number of children each year. And, because we all know it takes a village to raise a child, we are dedicated to helping other daycare owners provide the best care and early childhood education for the kids who come through their doors.
