FAMILY DAY CARE - MY INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS ! After only being on The Sutherland Shire Childcare Directory website for about two months, not only have I created my own personal waitlist, but I have just filled my final vacancy from a family that found me through the website in ENGLAND ! Moving to Miranda this June, the family wanted to be prepared, so they searched the net for suitable childcare in the area. Coming from a small country town, they loved the idea of Family Day Care and said they had decided, just from my info and photos on the site, that they were 99.9% sure they wanted their children in my care, as it had such a great family feel to it. They were looking for full time care for their son and before and after school care for their daughter. I informed them that I could only have their daughter here before school, and only if she went to the school my daughterr attends, and suggested they look into it as it is a great school and smaller than their previous school of choice. They did, and felt it would be a more suitable school for her, given what she was used to. It felt great to have someone feel so confident in me, my opinion and my service prior to even meeting me in person). As they were still a month away from the big move, I asked if they could pay the non-refundable bond via PAYPAL and I scanned all contracts and enrolment forms and had them fill in and sign them all and email back to me. This secured their spot for the month and made us both feel at ease during the wait. I met the whole family and they started the following Monday. I have their son one day a week, yet they hope to have him here full time by next year. His mother informed me that they are sending him to a pre-school for now, but will definitely be transferring him as soon as positions become available with me on other days. Finally...the roles are reversed ! I thoroughly recommend, Kristy
The Sutherland Child Care Directory has been an instrumental tool in building my Family Day Care busniess, I have been able to reach a whole new lot of families looking for care in the websites comprehensive and easy to view webpage. I highly recommend the Sutherland Shire Child Care directory to build your business. Merediths Family Day Care
We really like being a part of Shire Child Care because our parents can learn all about our preschool and even sign up onto our waiting list without the need to leave home. This is often really helpful for people with small children, who find it difficult to visit. Tracey, Cronulla Preschool
We have had numerous families contact us through viewing our information on the Shire Directory. The information was professionally displayed, easily accessed and able to be updated as required. Thank you Janene Rox, KU Sutherland Preschool
Your website has had such a positive influence on both parents looking for quality care for their precious ones, as well as a positive exposure of the childcare facilities available. 'Family Day Care' has benefited greatly from this exposure as many parents aren't aware of our specialised, personalised and quality Childcare Service. Thanks to you I have a gorgeous 4month old baby starting with me next week. A new baby in care HOORAY! Its been a pleasure doing business with you. Many happy parents, children and carers alike say thanks for such a great website. Regards Renata, Family Day Care, Sylvania
Thank you so much for all you have done for me. I so appreciate all your help - the fact that you came out and took photos, helped me put together my information and then made it into such a great webpage. I have recieved so much response from my listing - especially since you did that letterbox drop. My phone has been ringing of the hook!!! Again thank you so much for all your help promoting family day care and constant support. Kind regards Sue - Family Day Carer
Since we first advertised with shirechildcare.com.au in March 2006, we have noticed a significant increase in the enquiries for our centre. It has saved me time as most enquiries come via e-mail allowing me to respond when it best suits me. The other advantage of e-mail enquiries is I can send the waitlist form electronically saving me time and money! Laureen Keogh, Owner Jannali Kinder Care Long Daycare Centre.
