Looking for a bit of inspiration really. Decided not to go back to work after mat leave so now looking at opening my own preschool and afterschool but want a really catchy name for it. There are so many of these around I just want something thats not so common.
Any ideas? Any inspiration out there?
Do a bit of brainstorming:
What will differentiate your pre-school/afterschool from others? Like, what is your Unique Selling Point? Will the focus be on play or learning or both?
I wanted to open a pre-school a few years ago and I was going to call it Back2Play because I wanted the focus to be on play as opposed to the heavy emphasis on learning most Montessori schools would have had at the time. I hate the cutesie names like "Little Bunnies" or "Little Rainbows" but you might love them.
Here's a few names from the area I live which might inspire you-
The Kidz Lodge
And there's an afterschool homework club called The Bookworm.
Hope this helps!
I'll have to have a little think and get back to you but can I just say:
PLEASE don't call it something with a Z replacing an S! I absolutely HATE that. I know it's supposed to be different and all and I get that, but...it's the incorrect spelling! I just don't understand businesses working with children, to EDUCATE children, spelling the name of their business incorrectly. Even if it's not an education business, I still hate it. I saw a hairdressers once called something like Kidz Kuts and I wanted to shoot myself. There's a pub down in Wexford called Jimmy'z. I swear to God, not Jimmy's which would be correct, apostrophe and all. But Jimmy'z. Everytime I walk past it my hands itch to get a can of paint and fix it.
It's just a little bugbear of mine as you can see!!

I love Town Mice and Country Mice
to you all
Aw girls thanks so much.
I totally agree with you all-I don't like the cutey names or mispelled names for the same reason...
Macattach I like brightsparks and bookworm-its so hard to get a name that will work for both groups
WOW SaraD08 thanks so much for all that-very kind
Brain sluggish but just a besta luck to ya.
Passed one today called "The Toddler Inn" as if it was a pub, it looked quite snazzy actually, it's in Dublin off the Navan Road.
How about the Zone or the Den, you need something catchy and cool for after school as i have found kids hate going to school after school so if you call it something cool its more like a hip club they are going to rather than afterschool.
