In today's world, parents need to go back to work, but they are often stuck home with their children because they are without childcare. They are also struggling with the current homework and other assignments that teachers are assigning to allow their students to enter the next grade level.

Of course, you want a beautiful spot to do this, but you also want it to last and be durable.
Lighting- Of course, you'll need light. The two basic options that we offer are fluorescent light and can light. Fluorescent lighting gives you the most light and is great for when you’re doing a project or for an in-home daycare when you want to fill the space with bright white light. The can light are great because you can dim them, making it perfect for nap time. The best part is, you can choose both! It’s amazon how any area can look with proper lighting.
Flooring- Of all the surfaces in your basement, the floor is the one that is most vulnerable to water damage. Luckily, we offer many options for the flooring to keep it dry. The ThermalDry floor matting comes in carpet or tile and each tile has raised pegs on the bottom that create an air space under the floor. This prevents water from condensing under the floor. MillCreek flooring is exclusive because it has the warm, earthy look of wood, but it is all-plastic which is perfect for accidental messes. It is planked like real wood and has a tongue and groove design to lock them together.

A perfect teacher-child ratio, flexible hours, following updated regulations, and a new space would have you running a successful new business.
