Why your family day care business needs a newsletter

As a family day care business owner, I know you’re always on the go. Staying connected to parents and families to keep them informed about their child’s progress can be a challenge. However, newsletters are a great way to connect with your family day care service’s community. They’re a valuable communication tool that can keep everyone informed on what’s going on with your program, as well as provide helpful information and resources.

The idea is to create an avenue to share important information with the families enrolled in your service in order to make them feel more connected. I love sharing a weekly newsletter with my community (you can sign up here). This will help your service meet Quality Area 6 of the National Quality Framework.

Here are five reasons why your family day care business needs a newsletter: 

1) Newsletters help you stay top of mind with your target market.

A well-designed newsletter is an effective way to keep in touch and build relationships with potential and current customers. The more frequently you communicate with your audience, the better chance you have of staying front-of-mind when they’re ready to make a decision to enrol with a family day care service.  

A weekly or monthly newsletter will keep readers coming back for more because they know they’ll have new information waiting on them when they arrive at your website or open up their email inbox every month.

Email newsletters have become a popular promotional tool for marketing, and studies show that people are more likely to read and appreciate content sent to them by email when it is from businesses they already have a relationship with. This means that even if a family is not currently enrolled in your service, you will be the first business they think of if they need family day care in the future.

A newsletter can be shared on social media or forwarded on by people who are on your mailing list, making it a great way to grow the reach of your brand and to establish credibility as a professional early childhood education service

2) They’re a great way to share important news and updates. 

Newsletters are great for staying in touch, sending out reminders, giving updates, announcing changes, and providing details about upcoming events.

Parents of children enrolled in a family day care service may not always know what educators are doing to help their child grow and learn. Newsletters can be used as an effective tool to keep parents informed about events, activities, and accomplishments of your service. They will appreciate all the little things you’re doing for their child!

3) They offer an opportunity to promote your program. 

It’s important that you keep your parent’s top of mind so they feel connected to family day care life. Family day care services can use newsletters to share information with parents about health updates and upcoming events like excursions.

Updates on your program are a great way to let families know what their child is learning, and gives them prompts for conversations with their child about their day. Additionally, you will get to showcase your knowledge, skills, and the quality of your program.

You can also use the newsletter to provide educational information about topics related to early childhood education. This is a great way to show families that you are passionate about your work and care about their child’s development, and demonstrates that you take your responsibility as an education and care service seriously.

4) Newsletters can give you an opportunity to remind families of the policies and procedures you follow in your family day care business.

Newsletters are also a great way to reinforce policies and procedures in a friendly and professional manner. For example, if you have an outing or excursion coming up, you can use your newsletter to remind families of your procedures around morning drop-offs to ensure everything runs smoothly and on time.

5) And best of all, newsletters are an inexpensive marketing tool!

People love reading newsletters. If your newsletter is informative, educational, and entertaining, your readers will look forward to receiving it. You can use templates in your email client or create them yourself – it’s up to you. If putting together a newsletter seems overwhelming to you, there are plenty of companies out there who will be happy to do all the work for you at an affordable price!

Newsletters are an important tool for all family daycare providers because they can be used to share updates and news with families, build relationships, and stay in touch. They’re also great tools if you want to give parents a little more information about what your services entail before they visit the centre or enrol their children.

In conclusion, a newsletter provides your family day care business with a marketing advantage by providing families and prospects with valuable information about your business. It also gives families an opportunity to know more about the care that you provide for their children, giving them peace of mind knowing their child is in the hands of a professional.

Family day care businesses can create a stronger connection with their families by using a newsletter to create a feeling of community around the service. For the families, this can help to make them feel they belong and respected.

To take full advantage of the benefits of a newsletter, start by asking yourself what is your objective? What do you want people to do? This helps when it comes time to develop content for the newsletter.
