About The Kiddie Depot Daycare:
The Kiddie Depot daycare center is a 24 hour licensed learning center located in the heart of Kansas City’s urban core.  It is owned and operated by Myron and Penny Dale McCant.  The center is a spin off of the original home-based child care facility that is still in operation today, Kiddie Depot1.
There are a total of 15 employees that provide services to more than 100 children. 
Over the past two years, Kiddie Depot Daycare has experienced significant growth, outgrown the current facility, and has a waiting list of additional families that would like their services.  In 2017, they endeavor to build a new facility that would allow additional growth and provide a learning institution second to none, all under one roof.

If you have one piece of advice for an entrepreneur just starting out, what would it be?
