Costs to Consider

Consider the following costs:

  • Do you have the required fencing?
  • Do you have a mounted fire extinguisher?
  • Do you have age-appropriate equipment and activities?
  • Do you have sleeping equipment for each child you plan to care for?
  • Do you have hazards hidden or locked from accessibility to children?
  • Are your pet’s health records up-to-date?
  • Do you have a first aid kit?

These are just a few examples of potential costs that are related to opening your home as a child care business.
