  • When opening a new centre marketing is key. There are many methods of generating enquiries and getting the “word out”.

    Prior to advertising with CareforKids we were receiving about 10-12 genuine enquires a week via other enquiry methods.

    After the first week with registering with CareforKids our enquiries increased to 30-40 enquiries a week and have remained strong.
