Most of you know that I run a daycare from my home. I want to make some changes next fall when school starts back up again, and I am struggling with when to tell the parents. I have a few young toddlers right now, and they will need to find somewhere new.
On one hand, I want to give them as much time as possible, but in reality, I don't want them leaving me too early and potentially losing a lot of income. The kids needs always come first for me, but I also have to look out for the business end of my daycare and make the best financial choice as well.
If your daycare provider decided to make a change and you needed to find new childcare, how much notice would you think is reasonable? I know that it is a stressful process, so I want to give them advance warning. I'm thinking maybe a month??? But if I make changes in September, then that means notice in August and thats usually a crazy month for most parents.
I'm really torn about this. Not quite sure what to do. I want a "working mom's" perspective. Thanks.
