I just had this chat with my MIL.

So, basically what you're saying is that because we aren't licensed, even if we're operating within our states legal regulations; we can't get insurance at all?

So what are we supposed to do then? get a rider on our homeowners and hope nothing happens?

I think for most family daycare, their homeowners insurance would suffice but maybe DCI will think otherwise.

Unregistered I am currently licensed caring for multiple families. I have decided to go legally unlicensed and will only continue to care for my niece. Because I am licensed, I currently have business liability insurance. Do I still need this coverage once I am unlicensed and caring for family only?
