When you are staffing teachers make sure you look to see what can they add to the mix. My teachers are all the same and so different at the same time which makes a perfect balance. I know who to call on when I need certain task done in my preschool business. I’m now able to travel to train and coach my clients because I’ve formulated the dream team. (Teachers if you are reading this go away! It’s not a compliment or a means to add to your Christmas gift.😂😂😂)
I tend to focus on the big picture and how far I have yet to go especially when it comes to my mental health and motherhood. I continually look ahead at all of the work I have yet to do and become frozen by the thoughts. “Tomorrow I will breathe more thru my anxiety.” “Next week I will be better with my patience levels with the boys.” “Will I be this strong six months from now, a year from now?,” and the list goes on and on. I am always putting the pressure on myself to be more, do more, and feel more. It’s a web I get so easily caught up in and often have a hard time finding my way out of. I find myself wondering why I do this because the truth is I should turn around and look at how far I have come instead. I should give myself credit for jumping every hurdle, picking myself up off the floor, going to that therapy appointment, taking the boys out on my own despite my anxiety being overwhelming, and getting up every day and trying again. Every time I start to face forward and become consumed by the length of the road ahead I want to start being mindful of turning around. Slowly I am learning that it’s not about meeting every challenge perfectly but about the progress made with each step. We can be so hard on ourselves and not give ourselves the credit we deserve. Who is going to start to turn around with me?

ARTS AND CRAFT CENTER activities gives our Prek 3's a sense of achievement and allow them to take pride in their work which, builds confidence. ... they get to try new things and also develop their “self-regulation skills” (when waiting for paint or glue to dry). This helps them develop patience.
Here’s the thing : you don’t need to figure it all out on your own!
Having the support from someone that has gone before can do wonders for your business. .
No need to take forever to figure things out on your own. .
When I ventured off and opened my childcare business back in 2004, I wish I had someone I actually liked and respected guide me through the process. .

Stop being afraid of your prices. Set them, the ones who complain were never going to spend money with you anyway. So many people have gone broke accommodating the customers budget. You just need to convince them to spend it with YOU! #childcareboss#buildingblockstobecomingachildcareboss

What are sight words? To me they are words that are a little tricky to actually decode so we teach children to look and say them in a snap. Daily we set aside time in our Private Pre-K schedule to review our sight words.
