I'm looking for a day care name that also includes volunteer work.
By Shawna 01/24/2013
How about "Helping Hands Day Care" or "Helping Hands Day Care and Volunteer Service"?
I don't think I really understand what the business will be. How does the volunteer work tie into the day care? And would the volunteer work even need to be part of the name, since volunteering is free and ... voluntary? Just curious!
I am opening a daycare and would like to use my last name in the title which is "Small". Any ideas?
Personally, I think you should call it, 'Small's Little Angels' or 'Small Angels'

My dream is to start a non-profit organization in the future that provides education, counseling, parenting coaching, child visitation monitoring, and other intervention type services specializing in children and families.
Does anyone have any suggestions of a business name that I could carry through all stages of my growing business?

Most of all I want the name to really scream how important it is to treat children like they are everything, important, and loved!
Thank you! :)

We are opening a home daycare. I have a degree in education as well as a CDA so we will be educationally, however, creative/play learning based. People keep suggesting we use my name Carol or last name Hart. I am not necessarily thrown to this unless it is catchy. Any suggestions.
By Carol H
By hopeful 12/16/2013
I like the first suggestion.
I have a comment. Be sure whatever name you chose states clearly what type of business you are, or at least somewhere on your sign.
An example of a wrong name, in my opinion, is a new bank that opened in my neighborhood. The name outside is "First Tech." For 2 years I thought it was a store that sold computers and parts, etc. When I found out it was a bank, we opened an account. Could have done that 2 years earlier. Names on businesses should somehow be a little more clear.

"Fun in the Sun Kidz"
"Fun in the Sunshine Kidz"

By Mwie 
By Donna 07/19/2015
Your name is tricky and may prove to be a little difficult for customer recognition of what your business is so think carefully before naming the daycare exclusively after your names..I'd choose an easily recognizable name that tells the public what benefit I provide...
But if you must use your name, how about:
Lee, Mwie & Baby makes 3

I'm currently setting my own afterschool club up and can't decide on a name. It is in a village called Golden and my surname is Wild so I was going to try and use one if these in the title, but I don't have to. I came up with Golden Explorers or Wild about Kidz. Please help!
By Dinah Ackerson 06/09/2015
I am not an attorney but have much experience in insurance and litigation. I strongly suggest you have your "children's club" plan carefully prepared to:
*Consult with an attorney experienced in liability litigation and insurance law in your area regarding your plans.
*If you plan to have children in your home for any kind of club-free, paid dues or whatever, I suggest that you speak with your insurance agent to be sure you will be covered for possible injuries, etc. You may have to pay an additional insurance fee for your club.
*You must be certain to have every parent's written agreement that their child can attend your club.
*If you intend to have employees and/or volunteers work with the children, you absolutely must have a background check completed for each person-for any possibilities of prior problems.
Your attorney will certainly have additional concerns but these are the main questions. Better safe and sure than sorry!
For one of my classes, we need to design our own day care center. I can't seem to come up with a name, but I know I want something relating to books and/or fairy tales in it. However, I do not want to use any specific story or author (i.e., no "Sleeping Beauty's Day Care or Grimm's Day Care), mostly because stories can be gender specific and the authors are not all age-appropriate for children. Seriously, have you read the original fairy tales? They're full of people being blinded or having body parts cut off or incest. Not what I'm going for! Any help would be appreciated!

Next year I am planning to open my own daycare from my house. Right now I am having a hard time deciding on a name. I was thinking of "A Caring Heart", but I am not too sure. I was also thinking of using my name - Lorena.
"A Caring Heart" is pretty, and I understand why you like that, but it sounds a bit like a hospice care or home nurse service. How about "Kids Care" or "A Heart for Kids", "Loren Care" or "Loren's Care for Kids" or something similar? Cathy

Kids love relating to movies and sitting/playing/learning in either of those theme surroundings would be so much fun and that's just the tip of the iceberg of ideas/themes. Good luck!

I'm looking to start a home daycare with my mom and need help with a name. We are inspired by a Montessori daycare, and we are in the tropics. We have a patio with palm, bamboo, plantain, and mango plants, and outdoor space. I'm an architect and my mom is a retired teacher. She wants the name idea to be something like "The Children are Miracles for the Family", because I had one like a miracle last year. He is one year old now and his name is Gianmarc. He loves Baby Einstein CDs of songs and learning games and songs for Super Simple Songs. He is such an intelligent child. He inspired my mom to decide to start the day care at home. She likes the concept of play and learning.

I need a catchy name for a nursery in Saint Petersburg. The nursery will be "British in style and in ideology". My names are Trevor Tanaka Taylor. It will mainly focus on teaching English as a second language to non native speaking children.
By Melody Bressler-Hay 04/10/2014
What about a play on your initials; something like "Traditionally Teaching Toddlers" or "Tirelessly Training Tykes". The Traditional sets up the British style and ideology, Teaching or Training will equate with the learning aspect and not just babysitting, and Toddlers or Tykes gives the age range of prospective students/clients.
Good luck in your endeavors.

I need a name for a for my center. I would like to use Cage Preschool learning center. Or can you help me with with professional kid friendly names?
By Monika Strongerthanbefore C. from Baton Rouge, LA
Sorry, but as a mother I don't find that name appealing (even if "Cage" happens to be your last name). It sounds as if you are going to put the kids in a cage. Of course you wouldn't, but it does not invoke positive connotations. Try to think of what kind of atmosphere you would like to create and go with words that convey it. Is it warm and family-oriented, is it more academic, is it nature centered? What distinguishes it from other childcare centers? Could you convey that in the name?
My name is Lena. Could you recommend a name for my home child care? Thank you.

I guess I am confused. Are you a nanny (going to others homes) or an in home provider (which is in your own home)? That would make a difference on your name. I would think you would want your name to reflect which you do.

Jovial Janet's (Jovial= Joyful/playful)
Janet's Jovial Home
Janet's Jaunty Home (Jaunty= fashionable)
Janet's Joyful Home
Janet's Land of Joy
Janet's Jocund Home (Jocund= cheerful)
* Here is a list of J adjectives: http://grammar.yourdictionary.com/p ... es/adjectives-that-start-with-j.html
Sorry but I don't think fashionista would really work in a daycare name. Even if you use something like "Fashionista Kid's Daycare" or "Janet's Fashionista Kids" I think it might confuse clients into thinking you either buy clothes for their kids (which can be really expensive), teach kids how to make clothes (can be hard depending on their age), or that you also sell kids clothes.

I plan on starting an in-home child care center and I would love any input on a creative but cute name! I am slowly starting the process of becoming licensed. I would mainly prefer something with infants and toddlers. Some of my inspirations for names come from my 2-yr daughter. She loves babies, monkeys, Strawberry Shortcake, Disney princesses, etc. I would also like it to sound professional and that the kids in my care will be learning as they play. So maybe something educational so that parents do not think that I am just a babysitter. Thanks in advance for any and all input!

I know this will sound weird, but if you use your initials together P and B, and keeping your "park" in mind. Call it "Peanut Butter Park"! I assure no one parents or children will ever forget the name, and that is what you need! An unforgettable name... that is easy to remember!

By Louise B. 04/06/2013
I don't know if this occurred to you, but "toots" is a common slang term for gas, so I wouldn't call it that. I kind of like the "hoots" part, but don't have any other suggestion to go with it. You could use a wise old owl on your advertizing; a good symbol for watching over children.
