    Calls are slowing down. Has Market Place report effected your business?

    Seems like I am getting a lot less inquiries since the piece aired. As someone just starting out and looking to get clients, this is not a good thing.

    Keep advertising torontokids, it's entirely possible the tv show has some parents worried but it will blow over quickly. You have a wonderful setup and we have a saying about feast or famine in our business. You don't get any inquiries for weeks and then all of a sudden you get four in a week.

    I am just starting out too. I've been advertising for 2 weeks. So far, two families interested. One was not a good fit for hours and the other I interviewed, but they are still checking out their options at this point as they don't need care until July. As much as I don't want to, I've started considering agencies...but I keep hoping those calls start coming!

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
Did you know?
On average, a listing is viewed each month by more than 100 parents looking for an available opening for their child!
