The indoor space, outdoor space and location convenient to parents are some favorable attributes of a day care building, states Swift Spaces. Either a multi-use or freestanding building may be suitable depending on how much space is available for children and the convenience of the location for parents.
The indoor space needs to be sufficient to accommodate the children and staff members occupying it, according to Swift Spaces. This should also tally with the rules governing the child-to-caretaker ratio of ones state. Since children need a place to play, enough outdoor space is also a special attribute to keep in mind. A multi-use building may not offer as much outdoor space as a freestanding building. The ideal day care building is easily accessible by parents, so its location should be convenient to homes and businesses.
A suitable day care building for lease also has a fully functioning food preparation area for meals and snacks as well as ample storage space for both food and nonfood items. This space should not be in a location where it obstructs movement or causes harm in any way.
Another important attribute of a building for potential daycare use is meeting the particular state licensing standards, notes Swift Spaces. Each locality has its own rules and may require the day care building to be a certain distance away from liquor stores and bars.
