I just go through American Family Insurance.
My agent set it up for me years ago (I've been in business for over 2 decades...)

It covers the physical building and property.
It also covers contents.

My liability covers my DCK's/families...

I pay approximately $1600 for the AmFam policy and pay approximately $500+ for liability insurance.

Here are their quotes for costs

The gals in my community have separate addresses like apartments... like 123 NW 2nd Ave side "A" and 123 NW 2nd Ave side "B".

I am in the midwest MN area.
Oh okay makes much more sense....

We have a provider here in my community that owns a duplex. She rents out the other side of her duplex to another provider. They are licensed as separate programs/providers. Each has 10-12 kids. (now I "get" what you mean...lol!)

I would check out Assure for liability insurance.

I own a separate house for child care so I don't have traditional home owners but instead have a business/facility insurance and then have liability insurance through Assure.

Here is a link to them... http://www.assurechildcare.com/child...nce-quote.html

MNdouble It will not be considered a twin home. One address.

LittleExplorers I had to get a separate insurance policy for daycare in addition to my homeowners and would highly recommend doing the same even if you don't have to. In the event you ever have to make a daycare claim it would go against your daycare insurance and not homeowners which could significantly increase your deductible.

The question I have is where can I get homeowners insurance from. I currently have a licensed daycare in my home and I had to work hard to find someone that would insure me with 10 kids, now we can have up to 24 under one building.
I am in MN and there is no family child care license class that allows 24 children for one program unless you are a center and licensed as such. This would require staff as well.

The most a family child care provider can have at any one time is 14 and that is with 2 caregivers.

Separate buildings and/or homes for family child care in MN is legal and acceptable. It's actually rather common.

What part of the state are you in?
I'm surprised you had such a hard time finding insurance as there are several companies that offer family and group family liability insurance in MN.
