For Child Care Providers

Starting, operating, or expanding a family child care business

Family child care is a home-based business that lets you earn income by caring for children in your home.

There is a need for family child care in every community. The need is especially great for infant care and for older childrenbefore and after school hours.

The basic requirements are pretty simple. To start with, you need to:
  • enjoy working with children,
  • be able to provide a nurturing, safe environment. The child care resource center (CCRC) in your community will help you with the rest.
