Response: When I first started out I did a lot of advertising. I put ads in the papers and even took my daughter around in a stroller around the neighborhood putting flyers in the doors. At first it was tough but then Penn Pals just became a word of mouth so advertising is not really needed anymore..

10. Do you have any competitors? What do you have that they don't?
Krista Gismondi's comment, April 1, 2014 11:24 PM
Response: we don't have competitors but no other daycare centers around here allows your child to come here from being an infant all the way up to 6th grade if needed. We are so successful because I'm always here and present and is accessible to talk too when some places never have the owner present..
