First plan your child care center out on paper. Use it as a rough draft.
Then start using the computer to generate your floor plan. This will take time. Make sure that you save each time you work on the floor plan. It will be gone if you don’t.
This floor plan system allows you to arrange furniture, put in doors and windows and allows you to make connections to the outside play area. The reason you need a rough draft first is so that you can establish the correct size for your facility in the beginning.
