Working Moms\\\' Secret Weapon: Child-care services (Part 1)

Putting up your own daycare or playschool is also a great business idea.
By KC Calpo |

It\\\'s not just sheer talent, drive, instinct and smarts that can be credited for a person\\\'s success in business. Those who surround and assist that successful person should also be given recognition, particularly the ones in the entrepreneur\\\'s private life. Working moms know full well the difficulty of juggling their familial duties with those involving their jobs or businesses. Not all mompreneurs can bring their precious kids to work, have flexible schedules, and/or hire yayas to take care of them while they\\\'re at the office. And not all moms can stay at home, look after their little ones every day, or opt for a home school program (our sister site, Smart Parenting, has great articles on home schooling).

 

[related|post]For the hardworking moms and moms-to-be (and even dads), we offer a short list of daycare centers, preschools and playschools that can take education-related worries off your mind — and give you assurance that your children\\\'s minds are being fed quite well while you\\\'re earning and providing for them. Putting up your own daycare or playschool is also a great business idea, so we\\\'ve also included a couple of tips and resources for those who want to explore this route.

 

Prima Day Care and Play School

 

Located at The Ascott in Makati City, Prima Day Care and Play School espouses holistic development, and sees each child as having different modes of thinking and expression. The facility\\\'s qualified teachers use both “structured and unstructured play” to develop kids\\\' skills; give them the foundation they need for learning areas such as reading/writing, math and science; and encourage leadership, experimentation and individuality. Parents and guardians also get regular reports and feedback from the teachers, and are encouraged to participate in their children\\\'s learning process.

 

Prima has three regular play school programs made for kids: the Active Tots program for those aged two, the Juniors program for three-year-old children, and the Seniors program for little ones who have already marked their fourth birthday. All regular programs\\\' classes are held from Mondays to Fridays, at 9AM-12NN and 1:30PM-4:30PM. Payments for the three 10-month-long programs are at PhP 11,000.00/month, or PhP24,250.00 if you prefer to pay quarterly (payment periods: June, August, November and January).

 

Prima also has a non-regular schedule for parents who want their kids to attend the play school only thrice a week at the most. Payments for the Monday-Wednesday-Friday classes are at P7,000.00/month, and P16,250.00/quarter. Fees for both regular and non-regular classes include those for school materials.
