I also know a local woman who started off doing home daycare and then bought a house just for daycare, BUT its registered as a center (so she can have more kids), and she also has a BA and director permits.
I have to remember to call because I think it would be against zoning regulations as people in my neighborhood hide their businesses so there must be a reason. One had a hair salon, others have lawn and landscaping businesses, one did sewing alterations and another a First Aid/CPR class business on the side. I read our state laws as far as a child care. An in home childcare is okay but I think it is an 'exemption' granted as you couldn't very well have a 'home' child care without being in a residential neighborhood.

I am curious though as I can't find anything online about it but I didn't look very long either.
