SNHU Child Care Center
Transcript of SNHU Child Care Center
By: Sarah, Bob and Chris
SNHU On Campus Care aims to prepare its students to excel as young leaders of tomorrow by combining an education based curriculum tailored specifically for children with enhanced, first class childcare services.
Unlike our competitors, we will offer technology programs, after-school tutoring, and activities such as arts and crafts, dance, theater and gymnastics, all in one location.
SNHU On Campus Care is a partnership between Southern New Hampshire University and Sarah Barnes, She will be supported in daily operations by an assistant director, a personnel supervisor, and will have access to the knowledge and professionalism of the University.
The typical American family still requires dual or supplemental incomes. This trend has created a need for high-quality childcare services and more facilities will be needed as the trend continues. The population growth rate in Manchester, NH and the steady growth of Southern NH University within those city limits leads us to believe this venture will be successful and will enable us to be a leader in this industry for years to come.
SNHU On Campus Care will compete well in our market by offering competitive prices, high-quality childcare services, and availability to leading-edge educational programs with certified, college-educated instructors, while maintaining an excellent reputation with parents and the community we serve.
The Directors of Southern New Hampshire University feel that as an employer in the Manchester area that continues to grow one of the methods for retaining our exemplary employees is to offer benefits that translate directly to the mounting demands of parenting and education.
With the aid of the University, childcare can and will be affordable for our administrators, clerical staff, security personnel, maintenance and food service workers. The idea, born from the hard work and research of a Masters Program student, brings all of the best of campus life and environment to the children who will thrive and develop.

Our goal for the SNHU On Campus Care program is to allow for the gap to be filled between working parents and their children. Companies that provide on-site child care for employee children are ranked in the top percentages of companies to work for in the United States. By providing care for children of employees at a very reasonable price, with high standards, and easy accessibility for child and parent interaction is what this University needs. Children are our future, let’s show them that we are invested in their lives and that balancing family and work success is a great option for them. As a group, we have analyzed both the demographic and market around SNHU. We have chosen to move forward with our plan. SNHU will be a true success with such a high enrollment and a diverse population. With flexible and talented staff within campus care we will provide the best service in the area.
Description of Services
SNHU On Campus Care offers year round care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. The center will be staffed Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Before and after school care is offered for all ages and will be more of a creative arts program rather than a structured learning environment.
Breakfast and lunch are served daily with a mid morning and mid afternoon snack. All meals and snacks are included in the tuition rates.
We offer year round availability and all outside activities will be weather dependent. Activities are individualized based on age but some include picnics, stories under the shade of old trees, roller skating in the driveway, sandbox fun, vegetable and flower gardening, playing on the equipment, neighborhood walks and ball games will be part of the summer fun.
Parents and grandparents will be welcome at holiday celebrations and other theatrical or athletic events.

The SNHU On Campus Care exists to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for all children in our care. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early care and education experience, which promotes each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Our goal is to support our employees’ and their children in their mutual desire to pursue lifelong learning and provide opportunities for parents to create a mutual work and life balance.
We want to be a place where children are able to express themselves through play, exploration and learning. We appreciate every child for who they are and see value in the things they can teach us. Staff will create space for each child to develop and create meaningful relationships. Through our Child Care Licensing with NH Department of Health and Human Services we will provide a safe environment for all children, employees and parents at our center.
SNHU On Campus Care has been developed to meet the physical, mental, emotional, social, and creative needs of the young child. The classroom environment encourages trust and independence. Emphasis is on helping the child gain a positive self-concept, self-discipline, and help in developing warm relationships with others.
Early childhood research shows that young children learn primarily through play. Play is an essential part of childhood. It offers the freedom children need to try out new ideas, practice-developing skills, and imitate adult roles. It allows children to learn social skills and develop friendships.
The concept for the facility came from my experience with a degree in Child Development and a degree in Leadership. As a student, I was working with children in an after school program that I directed and loved the growth and development I saw coming from them. As a graduate student, I was working on a college campus and hearing stories from my co-workers about the struggles of child care and the time it took away from their work. I thought to myself, a combination of the two things would be perfect. An on campus child care center for the SNHU employees, and that is how this idea began.

Business and Industry Profile
There are several major US companies that franchise including Bright Horizons Family Solutions, Knowledge Universe, and Learning Care Group.
In the Manchester area there are several public programs providing low cost childcare and educational preparation. There are also many private Catholic and home facilities that account for the higher priced opportunities for children in our demographic. (6 weeks to 5 years old)
One child in three was enrolled in preschool in 2004, compared to one in 10 in 1975.
The US childcare services industry includes about 53,000 commercial facilities with combined annual revenue of $20 billion, plus about 21,000 facilities run by nonprofit organizations with combined annual revenue of about $13 billion.
While your child is in the baby and toddler stages, you'll pay more. That's because kids this age need more hands-on care and so the center must hire more caregivers.

Parents report higher costs – up to $2,000 a month for infant care – in cities like Boston and San Francisco.
Topping the charts with costs over $10,000 a year for baby and toddler daycare are the following states, beginning with the most expensive: Massachusetts, New York, Minnesota, Colorado, California, Illinois, Washington, and Wisconsin.
By contrast, the states with least expensive childcare are Mississippi ($4,650 a year on average for an infant or toddler), Kentucky ($6,500), and South Carolina ($5,850).
Childcare for preschoolers
Costs for daycare for preschool-age children are generally lower, averaging $8,800 a year ($733 a month). Depending on where you live, you'll pay anywhere from $4,460 to $13,185 a year ($371 to $1,100 a month).
The most expensive states for preschool-age care in a childcare center, with costs over $8,000 a year ($667 a month), beginning with the most expensive, are Massachusetts, New York, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Rhode Island, Colorado, and Pennsylvania..

Goals and Benefits
The parents will receive all of the following benefits from this program:
• High quality educational preparedness for their children.
• Security will be provided by the members of the University staff and will have received
the training necessary to handle small children and their unique issues.
• University will install and maintain a “key card ID” system for entry into the facility and
the local PD will screen each employee, and provide background checks updated every two years.
• With the University subsidizing this program it will be the most cost-effective childcare program for our
valued employees within 5-10 miles of the University centers on River Road and Commercial Street
offering unlimited access and the availability of twitter feeds during the day for parents working further
away than time permits.
• The University will be able to deduct on a pretax basis the entire amount of the tuition and that
should provide for a substantial tax break.
• Anonymous surveys quarterly for parents to rate and make comments about their experience and that of their
Location and Layout
Requirements from the State of New Hampshire will require 35 square feet of learning space inside the facility for learning purposes and none of the furniture, restrooms, and food prep areas can be included inside those 35 square feet.
For recreation purposes the area needs to allow at least 75 square feet per child not including the area taken up by stationary equipment. Without a solid location the layout of the internal and external equipment, desks, storage space, kitchen etc are all difficult.
Square Footage Report / Floor Plan
EXPLANATIONS OF CALCULATION OF SQUARE FOOTAGE
To determine the registration/license capacity the areas designated for children’s activities must be measured. Calculations regarding the number of children allowed in the facility are derived from these measurements.
37.95.705 GROUP AND FAMILY DAY CARE HOMES, BUILDING REQUIREMENTS
(1) The day care home must have a minimum of 35 square feet per child of indoor space, not including food preparation areas of the kitchen, bathrooms, toilets, offices, staff rooms, corridors, hallways, closets, lockers, laundry areas, furnace rooms, cabinets, and storage shelving spaces, as well as 75 square feet per child of outdoor play space.
37.95.610 DAY CARE CENTERS, SPACE
In researching the local area many of the competitors in this industry are located south of the campus and outside a three-mile radius. Based on childcare research that states that people choose a particular center for the following reasons:
20% Someone told them about the center
15% Trust and Comfort
15% Affordable Cost
The major differentiation between SNHU On Campus Care and the multitude of Child Care Centers in Manchester is simple: We have constant access to our potential clients and have the ability to influence them in very positive ways.
