Today my mind is on Phonics, I want to restart my class but I’m worried no one will show up.
feel the fear and do it anyway right
I’ve had such a long break I don’t know weather I’m coming or going.
It’s Ramadan and I am unsure weather a 10 clock start will work for most.
It works for me. But do I need to be more flexible to accommodate my clients. Either way it’s an opportunity to learn what works best.
I want to keep the class at 10 because I have other commitment and I dont want to loss more hours in the day. I’m up from 4am and the later the class the less energy I have. Plus I have to think about managing my children, my husband, and Jayden. It also my husband time too as his left holding the baby instead of working.
It’s the time I invest which causes the greatest difficult. I am almost starting to feel resentfull. I really don’t enjoy the business part of the session advertising, organising, sorting out insurance, communicating with venue, sorting out the costing, buying resources.
I only really enjoy teaching the session and coming up with different games and activities to capture the children attention. Thats what I enjoy and love doing but everything else is annoying and a time consuming but equally important task.
I don’t want to spend another few hours modifying a flyer.
I don’t want to spend a second wasting my time printing advertising and promoting the session.
And I don’t want to spend time looking for insurance.
Debating price structure is not something I enjoy.
I want to spend my time doing what I love and enjoy. Educating my children and having fun.
I also feel crippled by not knowing what to do. Do I raise the prices and make the class more sustainable or do I keep running at a loss.
I want to be able to invest more into classes, but I am also thinking it will never be a business if I keep pouring my funds into it and I’m not able to get any of my finances back.
I think I’m struggling in the managing the finance. Or running it smoothly.
I want to run the classes with love and compassion. My main aim is to teach and inspire my little learner and their parents but at what cost.
How long am I going to run at a loss. Now I’m almost thinking I started this class because I wanted to teach Jenelle Phonic with her friends.
U must keep this goal in mind
I want to keep the cost affordable to the parents who need it most. But I also want to be able to buy the resource and cover the running fees for the class.
£4 per classes if booked termly or £5 one off. (Blocks of 6)
First trail session is £2.
BFC for now as I am able to keep my resource there and it works for me with location being so close to home with childcare.
Start again or continue where I am. I’m continuing where I am. I’m going to devote more time to recap so learner can join in.
booking at the start
Paper work paper work. Ideally I would like to have an information pack for new parent. Registration form, term and condition ( your child your responsibility ) and welcome letter telling the parents a little bit about me and phonics.
