Need advice- Starting a daycare

Anonymous

I am looking at starting an in-home daycare! What are things that you love about your child’s daycare/daycare providers? Daycare providers: what is some advice you would give a first timer with a 1.5 year old of her own? Also, how do you handle taking time off? Thanks for your responses! 😁

    Our daycare has their teachers on (4) 10 hour days and then a rotating teacher. I like this as when I pick her up after work, I am able to talk with her teacher about her day went or any concerns. They also use the brightwheel app so I get diaper/food/nap notifications and photos throughout the day and can send a text to her teacher if needed. We started at 1 yr old and they have been great in helping her adjust to being in a new (much louder 😀) environment.

    Which State or County are you located? There should be child care resource and referral agency in the area. They should be able to give you a good grasp of the market: https://www.childcareaware.org/ccrr-search-form/ Here is another resource available: https://www.childcareaware.org/opening-family-child-care-home-do-your-research/ I do recommend you check out local and state family child care associations as well. My family runs a family child care in California and I am on the board of a local and state family child care association.
