Now, I am aware that many parents find it difficult to find daycare for sickly kids, and I know a lot of babies and toddlers are on nebulizers for breathing issues.
Since I was a teenager, I have dreamed of opening up my own daycare. I have worked in a daycare. I have run a mini daycare out of my home. But, finally, after years of working my tail end off, with the help of a small inheritance, I had the money, and the certifications I needed, to open up my own daycare. I didn’t want a typical brick and mortar business type building. I wanted this daycare to be run in a large house, to provide a more homelike feeling. I found an old five bedroom four bathroom home that needed a little updating, especially the air conditioning and heating system. We live in the south and don’t need a lot of heat, so a self-contained forced air heating and cooling system with an added heating coil was perfect. Now, I am aware that many parents find it difficult to find daycare for sickly kids, and I know a lot of babies and toddlers are on nebulizers for breathing issues. I wanted to be able to accept those children and provide them with a healthy environment where they could learn and grow.. So, I decided to have added on to my new HVAC system a UV light placed on the coil to remove germs and mold and had HEPA filters placed both in the unit and in the ductwork. I certainly wanted not only to provide fresh air, but to trap the viruses and bacteria in the filters away from the children I would be caring for. I think it was an excellent decision.
