No matter how parents would want to spend all their time with their children, soon or later, they will definitely need to work in order to provide for their family. This leads to the parents having to leave their children someplace while they work, and this place is referred to as a child care center.
Otherwise known as a daycare center, these serve mainly to watch over, care, and supervise children while the parents are away. If you are managing such a facility, feel free to use any of the downloadable child care brochure templates below to promote your business and services.
Before we proceed to teach you how you’ll be able to design your own brochure, here are the child care brochure templates that you can download and use. These brochure templates are all high quality and were professionally-designed, and they will also allow you to edit them fully and easily.
One factor for ensuring the effectiveness of your brochure is the elements. They should be able to provide readers with what they need to know about the business while also being motivated to take the necessary action. Below is a list of the elements that should be found on your brochure, use this as your guide when adding your content.
1. Cover page: The first and foremost element in an advertisement brochure, regardless of the type and its purpose should be the cover page. This element serves to make an impression to the readers, and it also provides them with an idea of what is being advertised. Also, the cover page should indicate the name (and logo) of the facility.
2. Name of the facility: In relation to the facility’s logo and a name is on the cover page, it should also be seen on the other pages as well. As you may have known already, the business’ name is what sets them apart from their competitors, and it also serves as the business’ branding identity. With this element, it keeps readers reminded on who or what business they are dealing with.
3. A brief background of a facility: This element simply serves to narrate how the business came about, which is a plus for readers who wish to know more about the business before proceeding to avail of their services. When writing this element, make sure to keep it as brief as possible so as not to occupy too much of the brochure’s space.
4. Services offered: While the previous element was about providing readers with information on how the business was organized, this one is about telling them what the business can actually offer. In child care, the services can range from babysitting, preschool or early childhood education, and even home service caregiving. These should be enumerated and described in the most organized manner possible.
5. Organizational chart: Aside from simply mentioning the services that are offered in your facility, you should also acknowledge the people who are running the facility and those who are rendering the services. This is done through an organizational chart, and it indicates the names of the staff members and their designations.
6. Photos: A brochure that doesn’t have photos may seem enough, but it might actually end up looking dull and uninteresting, which is a risk that you shouldn’t take. In order for your brochure to look captivating, you should add in a few photos of the exterior aspect of your facility, and some capturing the staff rendering their services.
7. Location of a facility: There is a very likely chance that people who receive a copy of the brochure have no idea where the facility is located, and instead of having the prospect look for it themselves, you might as well indicate it on the brochure. The best way to do this is by indicating the street address of the facility, but you may also choose to include a small map to make it more convenient.
8. Contact details: A good brochure should also include the contact details of the facility. This way, if ever a reader wishes to make inquiries or clarifications, they can do it by simply calling the facility instead of having to go there right away. And when adding in the contact details, you shouldn’t settle with just the phone number, you should also include an email address, a social media page, or even a website.

There are various types of brochures to choose from, and they vary according to two factors—the number of folds and/or the way the brochure is folded. There are actually a lot more types than the one listed below, but we narrowed it down to just eight in order to avoid overwhelming and confusing those who are planning to make their own brochures.
1. Half-fold brochure: This type of brochure is quite similar to the next one on this list, but differs in the placement of its fold. The half-fold brochure has its fold right at the center of the material, and this results in having two equal halves or a total of four equal panels (two for each side).
2. Bi-fold brochure: As mentioned earlier, the half-fold is often considered synonymous with the bi-fold. However, not all bi-fold brochures have their fold right in the middle. Oftentimes, the fold of bi-fold brochures is slightly off-centered, and this is almost always for creative purposes only.
3. Tri-fold brochure: The tri-fold brochure type is a step up from the bi-fold in the sense that it has more folds and more panels. This allows you to write more content and be able to easily organize them into sections. The only limitation to this type is that because of the narrower width with its panels, you may need to take up more than just one panel for a single photo.
4. Z-fold brochure: The z-fold and the tri-fold are also quite similar to each other in the sense that it has the same number of folds and panels. The only difference between the two is the way the brochure is being folded. The z-fold brochure is folded in a zigzag manner which makes it resemble a letter Z, hence the name.
5. Accordion brochure: This is another type of brochure that involves a zigzag motion with its folds, but unlike the z-fold, the accordion brochure type has more folds and more panels. Usually, an accordion brochure will have three folds and a total of eight panels with equal widths (four panels for each side).
6. Roll-fold brochure: The last type of brochure on this list is the roll-fold, which may involve three or more panels, depending on the length or extent of the content. As the name suggests, this brochure type is folded in a rolling manner, which makes it very easy to fold and keep folded.
Aside from just the different types of brochures, there are also different sizes to choose from. The list below indicates those sizes according to millimeters and inches. When choosing a brochure size, be sure to choose one that enables you to write a lot of information while keeping the layout organized or uncluttered.
