Launching or Expanding a Child Care Business?


Heather Hopkins is Owner and Administrator of Toddle Flexible Preschool in Menlo Park, and a passionate advocate for early learning providers in San Mateo County. When Heather decided to open a flexible childcare program, she had no idea of the roadblocks ahead…to finding a suitable location and to getting all the approvals she would need before she could open Toddle’s doors to families and children.  

Heather now shares her experience and lessons learned with San Mateo County child care providers seeking to start or expand their businesses. She is an active participant in a number of early learning organizations, including the San Mateo County Childcare Partnership Council and BuildUp San Mateo County.


You can tap into Heather’s experience and guidance through an organization she co-founded called the Community Equity Collaborative. Their facilities resource is here
