Opening a Daycare Center?
I've scoured the forum, but haven't found much info on actually opening a daycare center (as opposed to a home daycare). I just would like to chat with people who have done it, to get an idea of what I could be getting myself into, as well as just experiences. So who here has done it? Best advice?

I have opened a center. My best advice is to get a copy of your city or county zoning code and read it cover to cover BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING. Then, get a copy of your states rules and regulations governing daycare and read it cover to cover. Are you qualified to be a Director? If not, hiring one can be very expensive. There are many many many factors involved in opening a daycare. You can pm me if you'd like. Hope that helps. Welcome to the forum!

Thanks Magnolia, and thanks for the advice! I do not currently qualify to be a director, but we are a few years out, so I have some time to take the few classes that I need.
