How to help your Family Day Care Educator and their small business

At Elite Family Day Care this month we are focusing on small business marketing and how our educators can promote their small business to people just like you.

So, what is it you are really looking for when you search “daycare near me” or “childcare in Baldivis”? As small business owners, most of the time in sole trader situations with little to no assistance, pondering these types of questions is a luxury or one done around 1am as we struggle to drift off to sleep. We are so busy working in our businesses that working on them seems to continually get shuffled to the bottom of our to do list.

At Elite we have a host of support services and networks available to support our educators in developing sound business plans, practices and quality improvement processes across the board, especially in the area of marketing. 

In Small Business Marketing Month, we would love to showcase just a few of the ways we support educators in Marketing their family day care business;

  • Our dedicated Marketing and Communications Manager is available to book one on one support sessions customising marketing solutions for Elite educators wanting to know where to start in marketing their business.
  • In 2022, our Elite social media channels will continue to grow and showcase the amazing environments and experiences many of the Elite educators provide across Western Australia.
  • Training -  we are investing in professional training both online and in person to assist educators to build skills that will benefit their business

These support systems are available to our educators year round but one question we get regularly asked is how can you help our educators and their small businesses? Here are a few ways you can assist:

  • Follow and engage with your Family Day Care Educator on social media. Sharing, liking and following all really assist.
  • Follow and engage with Elite Family Day Care on Facebook and Instagram. Sharing, liking and following all really assist.
  • Look for opportunities to recommend your Family Day Care Educator on social media. For example, when people ask for recommendations  in your community groups proactively mention and tag your Educator.
  • Review Elite Family Day Care on Facebook and on Care for Kids
  • Attend and participate in activities and events as planned by your Educator.
