There's a shortage of affordable, quality childcare in the United States—which makes this the perfect time to start a daycare business; especially for new parents and the recently retired! But what makes it even more perfect is the fact that start-up costs are relatively low and you already have the perfect location—your home.
If you love being around children and want a business that doesn't requires time away from your own children, a storage facility for product, or the constant need to market, market, market and sell, sell, sell, then running a home daycare business is the solution you've been waiting for.
I was there for all of my son's firsts. I was there for all of my daughter's firsts. And, instead of losing my income, I supplemented my husband's income and gained a few tax write offs in the process.
I can't express enough how truly rewarding it was to be able to stay home with my children, to continue to earn an income, and to give parents something I knew they desperately wanted for their own kids—a loving, safe place to learn and have fun. My home daycare business was there for me when I needed it and I have no regrets.
If you're not sure a daycare business is right for you—or if you know you're ready to get started, but want to start it with confidence—you'll want to order my e-book, Tid-Bits For In-home Daycare Providers: How to start and run a home daycare business. It is truly a step-by-step guide with solid information on starting, running, and operating your very own home daycare business.
I heard about your website while attending a class for [daycare] licensing. The information you provide is priceless!!! Your e-book gave me so many ideas and actually helped me prepare for interviews with parents and their little ones. The forms and lists to get started are marvelous!... I've already mentioned your website to a friend who is a daycare provider and will continue to refer people to your site.

I have been researching opening a childcare facility since January and it would have been a lot easier if I found your website then. You have put all the information needed to start a childcare business in one lump file. The information you have for licensing, fundraising, etc. is wonderful.

I was planning on running a large daycare, but opted to watch a few children instead, [starting a small home daycare]... It seemed like Alyice knew exactly where I was coming from, being a wife and mother of small children of my own. I purchased the e-book two years ago and still reference it. It's a really great book.
