Child Care Providers Can Make Free Professional Websites for Their Business - Here's How

You need a website.  And it needs to look good.

Parents need to find you.  Parents need to be able to learn about what you have to offer.  Parents need to be able to contact you.   We have set out to help you.


We have recently started compiling "how-to" videos and instructions for building your child care business website in on Build A Free Website.  No technical experience required!  

Tutorial Formats

  • short bulleted lists
  • video tutorial  about about a minute or less

They are set up in a way that you can quickly access what you are looking for.  For example, you might want to know how to change a design/theme once you choose it or you want to know how to establish your website.  There is a short video and written instructions for each of these things.

There is also a "mock" website that could give you some ideas for what you want on your website.

We are still adding tutorials but you can get started with the 12 tutorials that are there now!


Samantha Marshall, M.A.

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building
