Open a Daycare Business In Your Home

Updated on March 21, 2011

A Home Daycare Business Can Be Rewarding

Many mothers wish to be able to stay at home with their children, yet cannot afford to do so. If you are one such mother, there may be a solution for you that also involves being your own boss. One of the easiest and least expensive ways to accomplish this goal is to open a home daycare business. The benefits are great and the drawbacks are minimal.

A Home Daycare Business Benefits Your Children

Obviously, the most important benefit of opening a home daycare business is that you will be able to stay home with your own children. In addition, your children will learn essential socialization skills by interacting with other children. You can also ensure that your children, and those in your care, are completely ready for formal education. You will be their primary educator and will delight in seeing them learn and grow before your very eyes.

Start A Home Daycare Business With Little Money

 Another great reason to choose a home daycare business is that it can be started on a relatively small budget. If you already have children of your own, your home is probably already childproofed and you likely have an abundance of plastic under your feet - from high chairs and play pens to noisy toys and colorful balls. You already have most of what you will need. With the purchase of a few office supplies and a little advertising, you will be making money before you know it.

One of the best aspects of working from home is you get to be your own boss. You choose what you wear to work, which hours and what days you will work, the policies for your new business, and who you want to do business with. Did I mention that you get to choose your salary?

A Home Daycare Business Has Some Drawbacks

Naturally, there are some things about providing child care that are less than wonderful. Among them are long hours, the lack of respect from "working" people, and drowning in dirty diapers. But what career doesn't have some drawbacks? Your job will literally stink at times - but it will be your business.

You may want to keep in mind that every State or Province has it's own child care regulations that must be adhered to. It's always a good idea to check with your city council about licensing and regulations prior to starting any kind of home business.
