The Happening!


It's Happening!!!! I have just put in my weeks notice at work. I can't believe it! It doesn't seem real to me yet. August 30th will be my last day. After nine years....it's happening. I'm happy and....scared. My job has been my security blanket for so long, but I'm looking forward to the future.

And now the reason why I'm leaving. I am starting a business. Specifically a child care center. Our logo above. The Treehouse Kids Club. It's a short term hourly childcare center in Yuma. We're hopefully opening by the end of September. The idea hit me a year and a half ago when I needed to go bra shopping and there is no way that I could do that with the girls with me. I realized that it would be so nice to have a place to leave that girls to get my errands done without having to take them out in the heat during the summer or do my grocery shopping without having to crush one of my girls in the back of cart with all the food or go to a doctor's appointment without bothering my family for babysitting. We're also going to be opened nights and weekends for going to the movies or out to dinner. Anyway....check our website: http://www.treehouseyuma.com/
And a HUGE thanks to Renelle and Israel Leinbach who partnered up with us to get this done. If it wasn't' for her, I KNOW I would still just be talking about it. Renelle is completely fearless and very organized, which is my exact opposite, so I am very grateful for her great ideas and everything she's does. So I'm glad to be quitting my job so that I can put in more than I have been. Thanks Renelle and Israel!!!
We also need employees soon!! Let me know if you're interested or know someone who would like to work. Send us an email through the contact link.
Also let us know about any concerns you would have on dropping off your child at a place like this just make sure we address those too!
We'll having a big registration party so look out for announcements!

I'm so excited Edna. Maybe I'm gonna start my period cause I had a little tear in my eye reading what you wrote. thanks for the nice words. You have such great ideas and creativity we'll make a great team.

I can't believe you are doing this. A few of my girlfriends and I have talked about this concept endlessly. It has never gotten past the concept phase, but it is so awesome that you are doing this. I would absolutely take my girls there if I wasn't thousands of miles away! I need a place like this almost weekly! My only concern as a mother would be the certifications of the employees (ie. CPR, etc.) and child to adult ratio. But that would be the only thing I would worry much about when using a place like this. I can't wait to see pictures of the place!

Quitting your job is terrifying...I know how you feel! But you are going to love it, even if you are busy with the new place! I want a tour by the way!

Good for you guys! Looks great! Love the whole Flash site. Who did your website? I think the logo is also great. Ambers concerns would be my only concerns also. I have no doubt it will be a success. As a matter of fact when you guys are famous and are franchising out let me know. There are a lot of kids here in Utah!

Yes....I have been jumping around blogs from the area and happened upon yours. Which is kinda crazy in a way cause I just signed up for your mailing list. I am so excited to see your business in this area!!! Before I got here I asked my realtor if there was anything like it and she said no but called me the other day to tell me that yours was opening. Anyway, long comment....but Congratulations!! We will definitely be registering our kids!
