Getting started

Before you apply, it’s helpful to know what to expect. These tips will help you get started and secure the right financing for your daycare and early-childhood education business.

Begin by asking yourself the following questions:

  • How do you plan to use your loan?
  • What do you need to upgrade or purchase to give children the ideal experience?
  • Who will you need on your team?
  • How do you plan to get the word out to customers?

Answering these questions before you apply will help determine how you’ll use your loan, and how much you’ll need to borrow. Potential loan uses include:

  • Renovating, building or purchasing an ideally located property
  • Buying large and small equipment that enhances educational experiences and supports your vision of well-being and safety
  • Hiring and training a skilled team
  • Building your clientele through a strategic and targeted marketing plan

Next, paint a clear picture of your business operations in your business plan. It’s not always required, but it’s always good to have. You should outline what needs your business addresses in the education industry, information about your ideal customer, your competitive advantages, and your financials. If you’re a startup, this will include projections.

In addition to providing your business plan, it pays to outline the age ranges of the children that you serve, how many kids you currently and plan to serve, your capacity, and how you will handle staffing needs.
