STAY AT HOME MOMS: Start A Daycare Business From Home With NO Education

things needed to start a daycare at home

If you have ever wanted to know more about how to start a daycare but were worried you need tons of education to get it up and running? Then this article is written for you!

Over the past few years, and especially recently due to the Coronavirus, home-based daycares and preschools have been on the rise. Since community childcares have been a staple for years, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that childcare can be very lucrative.

With many parents still needing to go to work during the current crisis, they need somewhere to put their children. For entrepreneurial moms, learning how to start a daycare could pay your bills.

Unfortunately, while many women consider how to start a daycare, then are often left with a sinking feeling that they can't do it. Why?
Because most of them think they need a college degree to start a daycare. This is NOT always true!
In this article, we'll discuss how to start a daycare in your own home, even if you don't have any formal education. We'll also discuss how you can open a daycare without lots of upfront costs. Don't let the fear of the unknown stop you.
Think about all the childcare centers in your neighborhood. Now it's your turn to stop giving them money and start making good money yourself!


There are thousands upon thousands of mothers that run successful daycares or preschools in their own home that do not have a formal educational background. Many of them figured out how to start a daycare without spending a fortune to get up and running.


Without question, the single most important thing you should possess is a genuine love for kids. Consider that you will be spending hours with these children, and the parents will be looking to you to provide a quality educational environment for their children.
Having patience and a calm attitude if things get a little chaotic, is critical when working with children. Having previous experience with children is also another important prerequisite.
If you are a mother or have taken care of children in the past, you can draw from that experience to help you learn how to start a daycare. You should always exhibit patience and understanding with kids as you will be responsible for them.
You constantly need to be showing the parents that their kids are in capable hands.
Another important aspect in figuring out how to start a daycare is to pass your local city and state licensing. If you can pass this (which isn't really too hard!) then you are on your way to a fulfilling and potentially lucrative career.

A quick way to find your local licensing guidelines is by searching "your city" + "childcare licensing" into Google.

Now, if you have a structured daycare center and will be teaching Pre-K skills, you will need a quality curriculum which you can teach from. It is VERY important to find a quality one, because when it comes to teaching children, do not automatically go with the cheapest one available.
You can also visit your local library and see if they have one you can use for free. In addition, many daycare or preschool teachers have found quality curriculums online.

Finally, you should budget your finances and time accordingly. The last thing you want to do when starting your new daycare is to run out of operating costs.
You also do not want to kill your personal life either by letting the daycare take up too much of your time. Determine before you open your door for business how many hours you will be open for business each day. And stick to it!
Also, determine how much money in operating expenses you will need each month. Factor this into what you charge for each child. 

Although some states might require some education for a childcare license, most do not. Mostly it just depends on where you live.
So to find out what you need, first start by heading to your state's childcare licensing website. You might be able to use your local library (most people have totally forgotten about the local library!) to study and learn the things you need to pass the licensing.


Up to this point you might have only considered how to start a daycare center and nothing else, but did you know there is also another option - and perhaps a better option than daycare?
Starting a preschool in many ways can be a better option because the requirements are almost identical to starting a daycare.

Many people think you must have a college degree to teach preschool. In most cases, you don't! Really all you need is to pass your state and city licensing requirements, obtain a quality curriculum, some training and follow the steps listed in this article.

Actually, in many ways, starting a preschool (not daycare) is actually a better model than a home daycare.
Anyone seeking information on how to start a daycare should really consider starting a preschool instead. With preschool, tens of thousands of women from all walks of life have seen the benefits of only working 5 hours per day, instead of 12 hours a day that daycare demands.

Hopefully this article was a ray of hope for many who desire to own their own childcare business but think they must have a lot of formal education to do so. You can do it! As so many other women have.
By learning all you need to know on how to start a daycare, you might just discover a new and rewarding career as well!

To your success,
Jonny Tyson
