If you’re a daycare owner who’s tired of the long 12-hr. days, taking care of babies, and never having time for your own kids… you should start a preschool!
We have pretty strong opinions about daycares, so let’s just put it out there:
THIS is why we are so against daycare…
So many times, when we would tell people we started a preschool, they would ask us later, “So how’s your daycare going?”
I’m sorry, but the word daycare literally feels like nails grating on a chalkboard to us, and we would immediately respond, “Oh, our PRESCHOOL is going great…”
We don’t have anything against the amazing ladies who provide quality early childhood education for those who need full-time care…
But we DO have a problem with the daycare industry in general.
After all, we saw what it did to our sister.
She used to run a home daycare, but after working 12-hour days and dealing with the huge age ranges of children, she was WORN OUT every night when her own kids got home from school.
After working 12 hours, she STILL had to cook dinner, help her own kids with their homework, spend time with her husband, shuttle kids to multiple extracurricular events… the list went on and on!
No wonder she was exhausted!
All she wanted to do was spend time with her family in the evening, yet she was so exhausted she struggled to do even that.
That’s why we are so against daycare, and why we think women need a 3RD CHOICE – a preschool!
Daycare was NOT a choice for us – We couldn’t handle that! (After all, our kids needed US – not an exhausted us!)
(I don’t know about you… but no woman deserves to have to WORK 12 hours without a break…)
So when we were creating the idea of starting a preschool, we realized we wanted to do the OPPOSITE of everything we hated about starting a daycare.
We wouldn’t change diapers…
We’d only teach 3-5 year olds.
We wouldn’t work all day long…
We’d only teach for a few hours each day.
We wouldn’t be bored all day…
We’d teach and play with our kids.
And we’d get paid better too!
It took a lot of time and hard work, but finally we were able to successfully start our own preschool!
So if you’re a daycare owner, you should start a preschool by transitioning your daycare into a preschool!
