  • Unlicensed , Virginia , Employee


    I’m an unlicensed daycare here in VA .(caring for 4 babies means you don’t have to be licensed).

    And I’m interesting in hiring maybe a part time assistant or help, since m days can be long and sort of draining .

    Does anyone know what direction I should go with this because I’m an unlicensed entity ?

    And what I would have to tax wise to hire an “employee “ ?

    I saw they do allow a 1-4 ratio for infants with no license required until the 5th child is enrolled. Lucky duck!! We can only have 2.

    My concern is how you would earn enough with 4 slots to pay your bills and an assistant. I wanted to make sure you knew that ratio does not go up no matter how many employees you have. It is 4 children per home, not per adult.

    I also usually recommend a Kidkare subscription to manage all things taxes/business records. It is $8 a month and basically lays all the information and needed documentation at your feet. I am not sure if they still do a free 30-day trial, but it is worth it either way. Some people use it for a while to learn, then do their own programs, but I have never found anything better in my career.

      Hi, thank you so much!

      I’m not looking for a full time person, just someone to come in 6-10 hours a week.

      But, you are absolutely right when it comes to affordability .
