Many of the sections of this book are from my own personal experiences.  Building a childcare service is relatively straightforward if you follow the Annexes in the back of this book. What is not so straightforward is everything else.

I would love this book to be an active reference—something you can flip through to find useful guidance on specific topics when you need some perspective or advice.

I’ve included a checklist in each chapter to help you through certain situations. Like you I am still learning and although I am relatively successful in my own right, my experience is far from exhaustive.

When there are online references that might prove useful, I’ve included a footnote pointing to my website, where you can find more direct links to these resources.
