As a childcare owner and operator, homeschool momma, preschool teacher, blogger, and all around wearer of too many hats...moments like the one pictured here make me cringe. Not only due to the fact that I am uncertain what one of my own children may pass to those in my care, and vice versa, but the forced time CLOSED that those like myself have no choice but to take when one of our own children has an illness, fever, or symptoms that meet the State sanctioned closing protocol.
Since I have a hubby that can work from home, I can, at times, shift care of my little girly to him in a sequestered part of our home to prevent spread. However, there are still times when he, nor my back-ups can heed my call for help on a moment's notice.
Giddy Doesn't Even Begin To Describe!!
This is EXACTLY how I felt on the day I had a phone meeting with the amazing folks behind EnrollSmart.net. I was literally closed on that day due to a sudden 3 a.m. 102.5 fever of my little one. My hubby was out of town, my back-ups were unavailable and I had no choice but to close. I HATE closing my childcare/preschool. It puts families scrambling to call their back-ups at ungodly hours of the morning, or face missing work themselves. And we ALL know, with babies and toddlers, sick days are inevitable. But, having to plan for the sick days of your childcare provider is...well...a hassle at best, and at worst - very costly for all those involved.
Those days ARE OVER!!! Just one of the MAJOR benefits of EnrollSmart.net is the ability, for free, (YES I SAID FREE!!!) to post a standing "temporary" position to be able to pre-connect with available people looking for employment on either a full-time, part-time, temp, and/or every now and then type position in the Early Childhood Education industry.
THIS IS HUGE!!!
This means NO MORE forced close days! NO MORE calling weary families at 3 a.m. and apologizing for having to close! NO MORE loosing business due to too many sick days!!! Can I get an AMEN!?!
Yes, I realize it sounds like I must be a paid endorser, spouse, or employee of EnrollSmart.net. I AM NOT! I was simply at the right place (closed and feeling terribly sorry for my families) at the right time (when the caring folks at EnrollSmart.net called me!). It was absolutely NOT happenstance. Oh yes...and did I mention...IT'S FREE to ALL PROVIDERS!! (Insert happy dance here!)
It Is SOOOOO Much More Than A Meet And Greet...
The Enroll Smart Jobs Community
If you are looking to work in a child daycare center, join
the Enroll Smart Jobs Community. As a member our Jobs Community, childcare
centers can view your profile and then connect with you when they are in need of
staff to fill their full time, part time and substitute positions.
This Is Also A MAJOR Benefit For The Families You Serve
The feature I am most excited about, however, is just a small part of what this race car is capable of. It's major features are:
** How Our Family Smart Account Works Family creates a Smart Account that they own and can attach to as many as five schools or daycares for each of their children. The idea is that the account will stay with the family. **
Very interesting, eh?! It's SOOOO easy to test drive EnrollSmart.net. It will help you streamline your medical records, notify you of allergies, contact EMS in the event of an emergency, and keep the vital records of the children in your care UP TO DATE!
I am very excited about the possibilities presented here. I know ALL my families are looking forward to NO MORE CLOSED DAYS! Testify!!!
I wish you well...and I hope you get to play today.
Life is made of moments...
