Starting Home Daycare in Columbia, IL in October

I'm starting my own home daycare in October and need some advice on where to put my ad at to get clients. I already have it on Craigslist, but I've gotten a lot of spammers! I'm excited to be at home with my own kids and to take care of a couple other children. It has been hard for me to find good quality daycare that I'm happy with, so I decided to do it myself. I've been dealing with daycare facilities and Home daycares for almost seven years now and finally decided enough is enough. Thanks for any advice. Have a great day!

I find the best advertising is done by word of mouth. Many people will talk to their friends and family on who they used and find daycares from that. So I would advise you to talk to your friends, family, church members, any group you are a part of.....letting them know what you are doing and when you are starting. This also helps you know what kind of kids you will be getting. When you advertise anywhere you never know what the family is like or what type of child you will be getting......when a referral comes from a friend you can ask what they are like or even trust that the friend would not give your name out to someone that would not pay or has been at multiple daycares because the child is too disruptive.
