  • IF You Had to Open a New Home Center Today.....

    would you? I am considering opening a small home daycare next year when I move. Our area is pretty desperate for daycare so thats not a issue. I would be doing infant to 4. I would do a preschool style program based off the EHS learning standards. Ive done childcare in centers for 10 years so im not worried about that. Im not even sure where to start. I would need to be licenced as i would want more than 4 kids in care

    Yes I would still do it today!

    Looking at my state requirements and they do look daunting and complicated but in reality the process is easy and simple.

    Maybe you can find /join a Facebook group for home providers in your state. In my experience most providers are willing to help newbies with questions etc…

      Like BC, at the end of the day, it's doable, the perks are probably no different than any other job BUT I get to make my own rules/guidelines....still have stress, frustration but I also have the ability to shut-it-down quickly if need be for an issue within my own family SO I HAVE ALL CONTROL.

        I love having my daycare! When I first looked into getting licensed it looked super difficult but it turned out I was just kind of over thinking it. Once I slowed down I realized it was very do able! Didn’t take too long and I like my consultant.

          It is still the only job that allows me to meet all of my personal goals while earning a living.
