Child care is a much sought-after service today. If you love working with children and want to run your own business, a home daycare could be the perfect choice. But providing quality child care and making a profit isn’t child’s play. Caring for children is as challenging and multifaceted as parenting itself.

From deciding whether a home daycare is for you to planning healthy, appealing meals, from keeping the books to keeping the children happy, Start & Run a Home Daycare provides the information you need to build a thriving business caring for children.
  • Build a rewarding business working with children
  • Design a successful operating plan
  • Meet the licensing requirements
In addition, you need to master record keeping, licensing requirements, and all other tasks associated with running a small business. This book will help you get started right and keep your daycare running smoothly and successfully.

Start & Run a Home Daycare answers questions such as:
  • How do I find out if there is a need for a daycare in my area?
  • How do I get my daycare license?
  • How much should I charge?
  • What kind of policies should I set?
  • What activities should I include in my daycare program?
  • What equipment will I need?
  • How do I gain and keep parents’ confidence?
The companion CD-ROM contains all the forms and worksheets from the book, in both MS Word and Adobe Reader (PDF) formats. It includes worksheets for everything including sample start-up budgets, rate schedules, even a parent handbook!
