Before and After School Available Sept 2012 - Bowmanville
« on: February 13, 2012, 11:41:28 AM »
Before and/or after school care available, starting September 2012, for children in full day kindergarten and up.

Care is provided in a home friendly environment by an experienced mother of two who is certified in first aid and CPR. The super clean open concept home backs onto the schoolyard of Charles Bowman Public School (no crossing streets to access the pathway to and from school). The home is also smoke and pet free with a safe and fun playroom for children to relax and unwind after a hard day at school. Children will walk supervised to and from school and will be provided with breakfast (if required) and healthy after school snacks. Homework supervision.

Before and after school rate is $20 per day (special rates available for PA Days). Before or after rate is $12 per day. Sibling discounts available too.

Available 7-9 am and 3:30-6 pm.

Receipts provided.

Very nice advertisement.  Once you are established, you will want to consider stabilizing your rates.  Otherwise, every time grandma shows up or they go on holidays, it will be like they walked over to your house and asked for $20 every day they didn't show.

Kids are hard on a home (holes, paint) and older kids require specialized equipment (electronic) and harder play equipment (school grade quality balls).  Plus, school age kids eat a LOT.  You need to have the money to offer them as much nutritious food as they wish to eat.

Depends if you decide to stick with how many spaces you are allowed (probably less than 10) or if you want to open it up and just provide a safe space to hang out, no matter who shows up.

Thanks Rose. Great advice. I did think about asking $25 a day, but there is a afterschool program offered at the school, so to stay competitive I had to match their prices.
