Seems so far folks are leaning towards a preschool-type of program. I can be agreeable to this. However, I think we would need to possibly slant it so that we can be known for a "specialty" as reason why parents would choose us over other existing daycares/preschool. Also, for the business to be profitable, we would need to provide good value in terms of quality and again, specialty--that's my opinion. Thus my vision is to have an afterschool program where kids are cared for, where basic mathematics, reading, arts & crafts, etc., are provided, and also incorporation of leadership development skills which would foster good self esteem, responsibility, accountability, etc. I've looked briefly into Hawaii's regulation for daycare/preschool requirements--teachers need to have certain background child development courses, so if we are to do the actual teaching and not hire, we would need to complete child development courese--i will post the requirements in the Resource site.
