Green Acre Family Childcare has been visible on the World Wide Web pretty much since I re-opended. I started in 2010 with Henry whose family found me on Craigslist. The choice to start by advertising on Craigslist was not without issues – like a few scammers. My next family found me at CARE.com. After a few months they referred my third family to me – Now I had 4 kids and one on the way (via pregnant mom). I fill openings mostly by word of mouth or the arrival of a sibling. I also was found via my Facebook page. My latest endeavors are a blog and a website.
Funny thing about posting your activities on the internet is that you can use it to gain a new perspective. Take the stress of one of your unexpected childish messes of the day and turn it into a fun post of learning and loving children. THEN use it as a teachable moment (for you and the children!) that honors God.
