  • Still trying.

    Had 2 more interviews this wknd, but don't think either will be signing on.

    One was doubtful that older children (hers is 2.5) can get the attention they need in a dc that also watches babies. Whatever. You want a classroom with all like-aged kids (a center) but pay an in-home price. Can't have it both ways. Didn't seem to matter what I said to convince them everything runs like a well-oiled machine. Our days are fun and happy.

    Other kept saying over and over how much "stuff" there is. Of course there is a lot of stuff. There are 8 children of all ages here for 10 hours a day, 5 days a week. My playroom is neatly organized and not over cluttered. Whole middle of carpeted floor is open. This is daycare. I don't know what they expected.

    Hanging on by a thread here, and starting to think a corporate job is sounding attractive again. I must have finally lost my mind!

    How strange to comment on the amount of "stuff". And if you had only sticks & rocks for the kids to play with they'd be making comments about that, too.

    I'm feeling your corporate job vibe, though.

      I have to say that is a comfort to hear that someone else feels that way. I almost feel GUILTY for thinking it. I worked in that world for 9 years before my 12 years of in-home daycare, so I do know what it's about. Just the expense and work of being licensed, no benefits like PTO and insurance, and the crazy expectations is getting to me.

        Plus, after that whacko, it got me thinking, "I wonder how much I could sell that stuff for? Or this stuff? Hmmmm..." ::::::

          Just remember not everyone is going to be a good fit. I'm guessing you wouldn't have wanted them as clients anyway. :hug:

          I'm pretty recently out of the corporate world. It's not as good as you remember!
