How To Open Up A Daycare




Information On How To Open Up A Daycare


Before you can learn how to open up a daycare, you need to decide what kind of daycare you want to open. Do you want to operate a daycare out of your home, or a larger daycare that can handle as many as 200 children on a year long, continuous basis? The cost and the needs of each kind of daycare operation are very different, so is the amount of money you can earn, and what your operating expenses will be.

To open a home daycare operation, you will need to have your home inspected to ensure that it is compliant with the regulations that relate to an at-home daycare. This will include both the inside and the outside of your home, because you will need to be able to take the children outside as part of their exercise/play time routine. All low cabinets will have to have child safety locks on them and all of the outlets in any part of the house that the children will have any access to will need plastic safety plugs in them to ensure the safety of the children.

Your kitchen will need to be blocked off from random access by the children and generally it is required that electrical office type equipment will need to be removed from the area the children will be in. There is a whole list of things that will be inspected for and corrected if not up to what the regulations call for.

If you you want to know how to open up a daycare facility in a totally separate building that you buy, rent or lease, it will also have to be inspected to ensure that it is in compliance.

The kind of daycare operation you want to open will dictate the maximum number of children you can take in, and how many care providers you will need to have on staff. The number of providers needed will be totally dependent on how many children you are caring for at the time and is set by the regulations. You may be required to have fully licensed care providers or in some places your assistants may not be required to be licensed, you will need to check the regulations for your area. 

Here we have just touched on a few things you will need to learn before you can open up a daycare. We haven't talked about the requirements you need to get a license or what sort of furnishings and other equipment you are required to have available, or whether or not you would be required to provide a hot lunch or not. For a larger facility you may need to have a licensed nurse on duty. Other articles will be forthcoming that will get into more details on how to open up a daycare and how to determine how much you are allowed to charge, and what sort of income you will need to generate to make a profit after all expenses have been paid.
