Let’s take a look at the pros of having a family daycare business in your home:
Being a daycare provider is a very rewarding career. You are involved in children's lives at such a precious stage. They
are so eager to learn. They are so willing to meet new challenges. You’re the one who gets to present all that to them!
Since we're looking at the pros and cons, it's time to look at the cons of having a family childcare business in your home:
You've considered both sides of the childcare business and now you need to decide if the pros outweigh the cons.
If the pros outweigh the cons, you're ready to start a childcare business. You will find all the information you need right here. Read the "Step-by-Step Guide to Starting a Childcare Business" to find out the legalities required to become a licensed in-home daycare. At "Setting Up an Inhome Daycare" you will find many ideas for supplies and equipment you will need. Then, at "Marketing Your Daycare", you will learn both customary and creative ways to market your business.
If the cons outweigh the pros, the daycare business is not right for you and you need to look into different fields. Daycare is not a career you can begin or continue if you’re not 100% committed to it. If you start a daycare and then find out it’s not right for you, close your daycare. If you’re not happy, your family won’t be happy and you’ll end up resenting the children who come into your home every day. It wouldn’t be fair to the daycare children, your family or you to continue.
