[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

Hey, so I'm new to this circle of moms. I was wondering if anyone has any tips, advice or pros/cons of opening or starting an in home daycare? Ive contemplated it for a long time, we'll we always had it in the back of our heads since my oldest who is 6 y.o now, was a baby. I'm just looking for some guidance . Thanks!

I do in home day care. Can you give a list of questions or thoughts you are thinking. I could give you a ton of info of my experience, but it is easier if I know where to start and what you might be looking for.

Thanks for the input. I'll be going to a meeting for all the laws and everything that I need to know to get my license. I'm just more so looking for advice as to what people have gone through and input.

You should get in contact with Human services and see what your state, local and city laws say about child care in the home and see if you need to get lisenced, certified, and so forth. You also need to know the specifications on what kinds of things you would need to have in your home not only for safety but for the use of the kids and what is expected. You need to know how many kiddos you can have to yourself at one time.
