Hi!....I'm thinking about starting a home based day care in Massachussetts...has anyone tried that before? I have a 3 and 5 year old and I thought I could make some extra money by having as little as two children about thier ages cared for in our home.
We have a two family house and our tenants downstairs are moving in the next few months and we thought maybe we wouldn't rent to anyone but instead we would redo everything downstairs to be a daycare.
I think I read you can have up to 6 not including your own kids ....not sure how many we would try to have but at least two.
I have a class coming up next week about licensing but I just wondered if anyone had tried this themselves or knew anything about it.
Like problems you ran into or costs maybe I'm not thinking of.
Any info is appreciated! :)
