Default DayCare

Hello my name is chris and I am in the act of starting a daycare center with my wife. I dont know where you live but if it is in Fl. you need to start here www.myflorida.com/childcare you must have a Directors License in order to operate a daycare and be registered with the state of florida if you are going to be the director. Your daughters will have to complete a 30hr and 10hr course if they have not already done so inorder to work in the daycare. all of these course can be found at the above address. I hope this has helped you out.

Hello, Thank you for your reply. I very much want to join your class, but not online because where I am we don't have constant electricity, so you see learning online will be very difficult for me. Is it possible for me to come down there for the course?

Smile Starting a Daycare

First off you must have your local DCF(departmet of children and families) come out and inspect the place you are going to do business, to see if it's proper for children. They will let you know what you need to do as far as bring it up to code!! These peple as very experianced in this area so you need to listen to then even if your ideals for your facility id diffrent from thoers. After this inspection and she let's you kow how many children you are allote to have, they will issue you a license. You must get commerical Dayare insurance then hire staff which will depend on how many childre yu have. Ratio-- children to staff must be kept at alll time. Make sure staff ahve all the hours and schooling they need to work in a daycare. if you need any more info, feel free to contact me at Ke.char@hotmail.com I am also a guy who owns/operates a daycare.
