Do I Need a Daycare License?

Dear DaycareAnswers:

I am thinking of starting an in home daycare. Do I need a license in Michigan to do this? If not, how many children can I watch at once?

      Thank you,

Good Afternoon Samantha,

To find out if Michigan is a state that allows you to do childcare without a license, you would need to call your local social services. What some states allow is one family, no matter how many children are in that family if you're doing care without a license.

For licensing information from state-to-state, go to Licensing a Daycare".

For specific licensing information in Michigan, visit their Department of Human Services page at

If I can help you further, please ask.
