Business Plan for a Daycare

A business plan for a daycare can be a challenging one. You must decide whether it will be a simple care center or offer curriculum. There are a number of models out there for the daycare business plan but one thing is certain: a daycare has never been so popular a business as now.

The timing is right for starting this new venture. Not only are more and more mothers joining their husbands in the workforce, but also the number of single parents in America continues to grow at about two percent a year. Loving families with active children and an active conscience are in search of better lives for their children and peace of mind for themselves, causing the busy workforce to flock to an ever-growing number of quality daycare facilities across the nation. For customer convenience, in addition to serving the typical age bracket of children, many daycares will include childcare for infants six weeks and older as well as toddlers and school age children, all in one safe and discovery-oriented facility.

The main challenge to the business planner in crafting a well-prepared daycare business plan is the ability to properly separate income from enrollment, and income from reoccurring monthly charges. Many daycares reach capacity very quickly, and the business plan has to be ramped in a fashion to make the return on investment reasonable and steady. You must "waterfall" the financials in such a way that while at maximum, the facility also has a certain amount of attritions to show turnover in enrollment fees.
