    Starting A Home Preschool – Why Start A Preschool In Your Home

    homebased preschool

    Starting A Preschool?…..Are you actively seeking real opportunities to work from home? Are you sick and tired of juggling your kids and your day job?

    If you want to earn a full time income while being there for your children, then I have some great news for you. Why not start a homebased preschool. If you’ve ever searched for information on how to start a home daycare, consider starting a home preschool instead. Let me share with you three reasons (below the following preschool reading activity video) why you should consider starting a preschool instead. Starting A Home Preschool – 3 Advantages Of Starting A Home Preschool vs An In Home Daycare… Article Continues… 1. Long hours – Most people are familiar with in home dayscares, but not homebased preschools. Well, to be frank, in home daycares are great, but they can be stressfull and overwhelming. First of all, as a homebased daycare owner, you have to deal with crying, whining, and fighting children 12 hours daily. You’re pretty much working your life away from the comforts of home. You’re working more than 40 hours a week. How does that sound? Crazy…right? As a homebased preschool owner, you only work two to five hours everyday. That’s 10-25 hours a week. 2. Salary – Due to the fact that in home daycares are opened for 12 hours daily, you might assume that the pay should be greater than that of a homebased preschool. Well you’re wrong. In home daycares average around $4,000 monthly. Of course the amount depends on many other factors. As a homebased preschool owner you’re working part time for full time pay. The average homebased preschool owner earns $40/hr. That’s $4,000 per month. And again, that’s all part time income. 3. Younger Children – Most children that attend in home daycares are not potty trained. Remember, you’re dealing with babies to preschool age in a homebased daycare. When you have babies, you have poopy diapers. As a preschool owner, you’re dealing with older, potty trained children… well at least they should be. These are children from ages three to five. So which would you choose? Both of these homebased businesses are great. They both have their advantages and disadvantages. However, the advantages of starting homebased preschools far outweigh those of in home daycares. Finding legit work at home jobs, opportunities, etc., is like seaching for a needle in a haystack. As a preschool owner, you are creating a solid full time income that can sustain you and your family for the rest of your lives. And you know what, you don’t have to leave home or work 40 hours per week to do so. You cannot beat that!

    Following is a question and answer post regarding opening a home based preschool that I found on I thought I’d share it with you.

    Question…I am opening a home based preschool, any good ideas? Answer…:-) Great! It can be very rewarding. I am home-based as well and my biggest issue is that I do not have space specifically for them so it has to be a bit more structured than I care to do…but maybe some day I’ll have a house with a basement that I can use just for the preschool 🙂 We’re getting by right now. Right off the top of my head: * have a schedule but be flexible…remember you are on child’s time not adults and some activities require more or less time than you planned. * Include sensory—if you are in your main living space and can not have a sensory table I would suggest you buy a plastic wading pool or two to help keep mess contained. * Be sure to have policies in place and stick with them. Have a contract. * Provide variation of open-ended projects…steer away from coloring pages. Remember that preschoolers make mess! Be prepared. * Be organized! Have everything ready to go before the children arrive. * Plan on doing a newsletter or posting pictures (be sure to have a photo permission slip on hand) in the entry way to show the parents what you are doing. I ended up putting all the pics of the individual child onto a cd for each parent and they LOVED it!!!! It also got the thought across the I’m more than a babysitter. I tend to take pictures of the child engrossed in an activity. * Rotate most toys/manipulatives every other week. Keep some toys as “specials” and bring them out on a rainy day. * Get outside!!!! Every day possible. * If you are preparing a meal…include the children with as much preparation as you can. Not only do they love it…and they are more likely to try it…but there is much “learning” taking place. * Don’t go by the seat of your pants. 🙂 Create lesson plans and stick with them…incorporate the children’s ideas as much as possible. Many more thoughts I can add but maybe this will give you an idea! _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
