Why We Provide Diapers

Who provides the diapers?

In our case, we do. And for many reasons, too.

 

 

 

Why We Provide Diapers at Our Home Daycare

#1. We buy them in bulk. And get them delivered.  By the truck load.  Just kidding, just several boxes. At a time. On subscription. For a discount.

Who is stuck searching for an extra diaper for a huge blow-out? Not us.

#2. After we buy them, we charge parents for them.  We’ve estimated about how many diapers and wipes each kid uses, and we add a monthly fee into our tuition to cover it.  Thus, our tuition goes down significantly when a kid turns three and is potty-trained. 

We charge about $50/month/kid on top of our tuition (though we just add it in).

We never have to ask for them.  Hate having to continue to remind parents to bring them in? Provide them yourself. And charge for it.

#4. We choose the brand and size.  We pick our favorite wipes and buy ONLY those wipes.  No more crappy (get it?) wipes.  Not to mention having to tell parents to *finally* buy the next size diaper for their kid.  Forget trying to run out the pack.  We have several other children using that old size – just size them up.  And no more sad, cheap diapers.  We have our favorites and we STICK to them.

#5. It’s easier.  See above reasons – we don’t want to bother with begging for more diapers in the right size, or wipes that actually WIPE, or reminding several days in advance – or after it’s too late.

We are in charge, we know what works.  So we buy (and pass along the cost).
