A Chat with The Drop Zone Drop-In Child Care Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We offer a service that currently is not offered in the Waldorf area–drop-in child care open 7 days a week! Our long hours allow parents in almost any situation an opportunity to use our services. Whether you need 1-2 hrs to run errands or head to the gym, or 4 hours for date night, we’re here!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
As a stay at home mother of 6, owner April Williams was in need of a place to drop her triplets, just to do her grocery shopping or even go back home and take a nap. There was no such thing. With very little family in the area, she’d been struggling to find a trustworthy support system.
What do you love most about your job?
We’re always here and we’ll never cancel! When babysitters cancel, when in-home centers have to close for the day, when school is closed–we are here! We love that we are able to be the last minute solution for parents when they have no other option. It’s extremely convenient.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
We are life savers and learning about our service was the best thing that had happened to them that day! From our children, the fact that they never want to leave is great feedback as well! The Drop Zone has been complimented on the cleanliness of the facility and the friendly staff!
