    How do I market a new home daycare

    Hello Everyone,

    Just starting a new home daycare in North York, On. Need some help to get new customers. I have worked more than 5 years as an RECE in daycare. Please let me know how you all think is the best way to market a home daycare.

    Thanks,

    A lot of providers have ads up here and on Kiji (can’t spell to save my soul today)

    Hi. If you're a RECE it shouldn't be an issue filling up your spots. Just make sure during your interviews and advertising display your certification and years of experience and knowledge in the field.

    Also, explain clearly that RECE's through CECE follow a professional Code of Ethics and a Starndards of Practise. AND that the CECE offers a REGISTRY that they can check upon and see that you do not have any negative antecedents.

    As where to market. It is even easier as an REce. You can use this website, as others mentioned Kijiji, I think many now use fb groups (I'm not too familiar with it), but also look Conecctions through the Rece's community or school boards. And you know Rece's focus a lot on supporting to built strong communities the more you do as an REce in your community the more they will get to know you.

    Visit community centres, local playgroups (you can probably even offer an hr or so as a volunteer in a playgroup or toy lending libraries to support Rece's ) that way families get to know you and know your professional back ground and your availability. Good luck.
