Warning Signs Look out!

By akudo on Tue, 06/06/2017 - 00:00

It was a Friday evening in the month of May, after a very busy week, I was actually looking forward to sleeping off in hubby's arms while watching whatever he had for us to see that evening little did I know the day had its own plans.

I heard that sound as I drove off from the office but it sounded like a drag from the tires and not from  the car itself.  I wound up for a while for some AC, even though I am not such an Ac person and also  decided to try the Eko Hotel route home that evening. My colleague who took me home some days back took that route a few times and it seemed okay. As we approached the roundabout I heard that sound again, this time I wound down a bit to listen properly. I was convinced it was this big black jeep beside me and so I continued.

How to start your own Crèche and Daycare service business

By akudo on Mon, 06/05/2017 - 00:00

Providing day care for children is a huge responsibility. A crèche and daycare service provides entrepreneurs with an opportunity to pursue a socially conscious, challenging and fulfilling business. If this is an area you are passionate about and would like to build a business around it, here are a few tips you’ll need to transform this idea into a real-life, profitable business.   

Step 1: Find out what the law requires

Some African countries may have laws which regulate crèches and day care services. These laws may require day care operators to be licensed or certified by a relevant government authority or professional association.

Most of these laws and regulations have become necessary to discourage and punish any form of child abuse. As a result, the strict guidelines may often increase the cost of running a day care service business.

Mariah approached the beginning of middle school as a happy, normal sixth grader. She was a good student, she would be attending her neighborhood school with her best girlfriends, and she was excited about the new adventure. But that all changed on the first day of school. Mariah basically experienced the equivalent of a panic attack. She started crying uncontrollably and inconsolably. Tragically, the scene was repeated almost every day of that school year. Her mother would drive her to school but was often unable to get Mariah out of the car. Other days, Mariah would make a brave attempt to face her school fears, only to spend most of the day in the counselor’s office or crying at her desk. Her new adventure had turned into a nightmare.

Interviewing Daycare Clients

If you already own a Daycare or are considering starting one soon, you'd find this post by Lisette Martins, author of 'Starting a Home based Daycare' quite useful. Answering questions from parents who would like to see their little one settled in a safe and healthy day care can be unsettling, here, Lisette provides tips that can make the process a walk in the park!

One of the more challenging parts about starting a daycare is the interview process. Many new providers (myself included) feel like their whole life and family are on display for judgment and assessment by people who are essentially strangers. This makes them nervous and sometimes it can feel like you can’t be yourself even though this is your home, your business, and basically your everyday life that the will be part of.
