My area is over saturated with home daycares. I got my license last August and just had my first real interview. I've had a few lookie lous wanting prices, but i think they were other providers. I have to be honest though, I didn't advertise for over 6 mos because I needed to help my mom out.

I'm listed with the local referal program. I've been advertising on Craigslist, the local throwaway paper, and in the Penneysaver. I just placed an ad on a local restaurant's menu. It was less than $300 for the year. If I get 1 child from that ad, I'll recoup my fee in 2 weeks time.

I'm pretty sure that the family I interviewed last week got my name from here. The child will be 1/2 hr a morning before school, 4 days a week.

My neighbor across the street picked up 2 families, but they catered to a specific culture (Mandarin).
