Step 1. Learn about daycare licensing requirements

Your local government will have rules and regulations that will govern you as a small business owner and as a daycare business owner. You'll want to strictly comply with both.

Step 2. Write a daycare business plan

Here you’ll hash out your daycare name, mission statement, marketing plan, organizational plan, staffing, operations, budgets, and more.


Step 3. Find a location for your daycare

Are you starting an in-home daycare, looking to rent an existing daycare center, or starting a daycare business from scratch with a brand new facility?


Step 4. Get insurance for your daycare business

Depending on the type and size of the daycare you're opening, you’ll need several different types of insurance policies, including liability, property, workers’ compensation, and business insurance.


Step 5. Develop policies and procedures

Use child care forms and templates to kick-start the process of developing policies, procedures, and handbooks for your staff and families.

Step 6. Market your daycare business and seek applicants

Advertise through local businesses, parent groups, local events, and popular child care blogs.
