I already do childcare but I've gotten so many contradictory answers from people on another site that I'm really confused now! I don't know where to turn. I want to be sure that I'm following my state's regulations properly.
I live in NY. The law says that if you are unlisenced you may not care for more than 2 unrelated children at one time. If you have 3 children in care, but only 2 at one time, that is legal. If it is family then you are allowed more, but need to apply as a legally exempt provider. I was unlisenced for many years and just recently became registered. I now can be a part of CACFP, where I get a large check per month to reimburse me for serving healthy meals. Call the child care council and they will give it to you straight. They are employed by OCFS.
