How To Start A Home Based Child Care Business

Starting a home based child care business

Starting a home based care care business in your home is not that hard to do. However, it does take some planning. After all, Rome was not built in a day. Plus, you want your new business to be safe and profitable.

In today's job market many families are taking in children as an extra sourse of income. Even retired grandmothers are seeing the benefits of working at home with children.

This is a win-win situation for the person offering the child care as well as for the parents who would like to have a better environment for their children during the day. A stay-at-home mom can provide that extra attention to the children in her care because she is not babysitting as many children as a child care business. Grandmothers can offer children an entire lifetime of experience and teaching.

Truly, starting a home based child care business can be rewarding for the kids, the parents, and the owner.

Here are some things to consider before hanging out your child care business shingle.

  1. Do you have the extra room?
  2. What licenses are required in Ohio and from which agencies?
  3. What types certification do you need?
  4. What are the child-care needs of your community?
  5. Check on zoning and any other legal issues.
  6. Estimate your startup costs for toys, cots, blankets, games.
  7. What is your plan for accident and illness?
  8. What kind of insurance coverage will adequately protect you and the children in your care?

Most homeowners insurance will not cover you, your property, or the children, if you are charging for child care services. That is why the folks at Janasko Insurance Agency and West Bend have developed a special policy just for in-home child care providers. It makes starting a home based child care business easy and affordable.
