    I've used WordPress for a few years to manage my site. It's a little tricky at first, but you'll soon learn how to work it all out. Super easy in the end and perhaps the most way to begin learning about how to manage a site.

    Getting people through a free domain website is a good way to find new clients. Try to create a facebook account and also promote home daycare on it. It's free. As for me, I have a website for college students, I help them with homework assignments. Most of them find my site on Facebook or Twitter. So, think about it.

    WordPress has become one of the most popular, if not the most popular, blogging platform and CMS on the planet. There a lot of pros:
    - WordPress, and many of the themes and plugins for it, are freely available as Open Source code
    - out of all the Content Management Systems and Blogging platforms out there, WordPress would have the biggest community
    - WordPress Core has a regular development schedule, with releases these days very rarely breaking backwards compatibility
    - WordPress is famous for it’s easy installation process
    - there are a number of very good security plugins.

    But also there are a cons:
    - WordPress has a reputation as a difficult platform to design on
    - Limited Permissions Scoping
    - Historically WordPress has been designed as Blog platform. As such, the content model is a little restrictive
    - A lot of inconsistencies exist with the internal API

    In ane case WordPress is a strong content management system because of its origin in blogging. It is very easy to navigate through the pages and content on a WordPress website. WordPress makes it simple to organize content with or without a lot of website management knowledge. But I prefer custom CMS instead of free of charge CMS. You can observe it at my website. All comments and remarks are welcome.

    Greetings to all. For those interested, I created*a system allowing Childcare Providers to build quick,*simple and free to use websites called circletime.ca* . It's currently in a beta state as*there are still a few minor adjustments to be made, but it is accessible right now to anyone wanting to create a website of their own. It is designed very specifically for Childcare Providers, meaning there are predetermined fields in a predetermined layout. The goal was to make it simple and practical for busy people to quickly get a website up and running. I based the available fields on my own research of day care websites, trying to offer as many of the most popular pieces of information available.

    Just so there are no misunderstandings, this is not designed to compete with sites such as*wordpress, wix or the like. It is also not designed to compete with Daycare Bear;*it is not a listing service or information service (past whatever information you provide on your own Page of course).*

    Currently it*offers 10 different themes to choose from, which will increase if the site proves useful and popular. All pages are responsive, and should work on any device big or small, in any browser!

    Check it out - I welcome all suggestions and comments!

    I would use wordpress but for a newbie wix.com will be an easier option. I have used both of those platforms.
