You don't have to take any classes to be licensed in Illinois, except first aid/CPR, and those classes are usually on the weekend. Other than getting a TB test, physical, and home visit there aren't too many other requirements (other than safety standards in the home) There is annual training hours you have to take, but those can be easily accumulated through food programs and maybe a couple weekend workshops or meetings with a home childcare provider association. Where I could see you getting hit is the home visits from DCFS if you have a bunch of children present. I'm not sure what would happen there. It might be worth your time just to find some information out from you local Childcare Resource and Referral agency.
