In many new residential high-rise areas, local authorities do not have time to meet the need of the local population for kindergartens. There, parents are looking for an opportunity to leave the child under the supervision of at least someone, a relative, a neighbor, or they are forced to take the child to another part of the city. In such places, the organization of a kindergarten at home will become a popular business . The profit of a kindergarten at home may well amount to 100 thousand rubles. per month.

In large apartment buildings, it is sometimes inconvenient for residents from the upper floors to carry strollers, bicycles and other things with them back and forth. After all, elevators in many houses are too small for this, and it is very difficult or impossible to move up the stairs with such a load. Therefore, on the first or basement floors, a premise or zone for secure parking is rented. Of course, you can’t earn much on this, and keep in mind that the number of the target audiences in your building may be insufficient.
