The state regulation and rules of daycare setting are just an example of some research that we better do before establish our daycare. Usually, each state has some kind of regulation regarding with the children amount in a single daycare. Sometimes, it has even made clearer by stating how many children that can be managed by each staff of daycare. License of our in home daycare can be obtained well if we contacting the regional daycare license office.

- Make an arrangement of your in home daycare soon after you have completed all needed regulation and supplies.
If you already get the license and buy the needed equipment and supplies then you better start to change your home into your dreamed in home daycare. Of course, we should not forget to prepare all the supporting facility. Start with a simple one like toys, game, song, indoor playground with some mini car, truck or bicycle will be the perfect beginning. We also need to divide our home into several areas to provide great in home daycare services for children parents. Basically, we will need space for nap time, sanitation and learning or playing area. Do not forget to also provide the crib, diaper, chair, snack and other essential part of in home daycare.
- Sent an agreement letter
