wLittle Peaches is a part time preschool. I know in other posts I have explained our class times and dates and various other details about my program. However, I am not sure I have every really talked about the fact that I not only teach at Little Peaches Preschool, I own it. I created Little Peaches because of a passion of teaching, to be able to be there for my children, and I saw a need for this type of program in my community. I've now been at this for 13 years. It is March and my program is full for next year, and even has a wait list for next year. I'm not saying this to toot my own horn, I'm saying this to give a little clarity, before I ask your thoughts. For this post I am looking for some opinions. For those of you who do own your own businesses. My question is when do you know its right to expand?
Just this week alone, I have been told 3 separate times by 3 different people, that I needed to expand my program. I've considered this before, but I also know I LOVE to be in the classroom. How do I manage two locations and still get to connect with the children and the parents and do the part of the job I love the most?
I'd like to hear your opinion!
