When you are planning your new childminding business, having a detailed business plan can really help you maximise its success
About this pack
Completing a business plan can seem like just a time consuming paper activity, however it really can make the difference between if your business is successful or not.
Your business will always benefit from having a plan that you revisit as it helps inform your decision making, particularly around reviewing fees and resources and what actions you willl take if you have unexpected vacancies or experience other outside influences that affect your business. As your business grows, however good a childminder you are, the children you care for will grow up and leave your setting at some stage and you will need to keep planning to keep your business viable.
Working through a plan gives you the opportunity to step back and think objectively about the key elements of your business, enabling you to steer it in your chosen direction.
Revisiting your plan will also help you celebrate the business milestones you set out to achieve! This plan is written specifically for childminders so that you consider all the elements needed. It offers step by step, jargon free guidance on how to write your own business plan and make your business a continuing success.
