Building A Website For A Daycare
An attractive, functional, and easy to find and navigate daycare website is a must for any daycare center owner these days.
Starting first with how easy it is to find your childcare business on the Internet, there is a very strong argument that if daycare websites are not easy to find, they really don’t exist. In other words, if a daycare website is built, hosted, and published in a forest and no one can find it on their laptops or mobile phones, was it ever built, hosted and published? You see the point of our using a play on words with George Berkeley’s famous “if a tree falls in a forest” concept. The solution for you is to start with searching for and procuring a great domain name that will be easy for prospective childcare enrollees to find with they are searching for a daycare provider in your area. A relevant, intuitive, and easy to find domain name equals more successful business. The Internet is your modern Yellow Pages, and you want to be the most visible day care center in the “Ds.” In fact, domain names are often so important to startup businesses these days that owners and stakeholders are often naming their brick and mortar businesses based on the domain names available.
Second, it goes without saying that the daycare website you build and publish must be attractive and functional. If you can lead prospective daycare enrollees to your web site and you don’t look professional, your garnered sales leads never turn into sales. In a first glance, or rather within the first few seconds of any parent or guardian’s first visit to your site, you must convey your professionalism, a positive and safe environment for children, a positive learning experience, and the list goes on and on. Pictures say it all, and we’ve all heard this 1000 word cliché. With daycare website building, you need a platform like Doodlekit. Doodlekit makes creating professional header images, and uploading and placing images in general not only fun, but easy as well. Not only is the final professional product, or the first look of your daycare website made easy, it is made cost effective.

This means you never have to hire a web designer that charges you more than you can afford – all while always making you wait a lot longer than you want for the results you need!
Finally, functionality is a must. New things are always happening. You have promotions, parents and guardians come to your site to see your schedule, to download consent and sick forms, to make payments for supplies through your shopping cart portal. Your daycare website is like a living, breathing organism, and it constantly needs to be tended. More and more, communication is through web site portals and social media. You need the daycare communication portal Doodlekit offers. As a childcare provider, you need to be fast, effective, communicative, and this means you need to be connected to all of your children’s guardians at all time, be it by smart phone, physical location, or website.
