It is to govern daycare providers so that they follow the rules and regulations for that business. The state has this law so that in case there is a problem with the care your child(ren) are receiving in a daycare, it can be handled. I myself, as a parent DO WANT A LICENSED DAYARE PROVIDER FOR MY CHILDREN. I am willing to pay the going rate or more for a licensed daycare provider just for the peace of mind of knowing that that provider and whoever is in her household that will be around my children have a complete criminal background check for the safety of my children. Why would anyone put their childs safety or life in someone else's hand without checking them out first. Being a licensed daycare provider, I at least know that the place has to be inspected for safety and that there will be random unnotified inspections that the provider will receive as well as having to go to classes to update her knowledge as being a daycare provider; such as CPR, First Aid, how to discipline, ect. And by the way, what reason would you not have as to getting licensed? Do you not want to claim your income at tax time? Wake up people, there alot of crazy nuts out there as it is, why would you even think about risking the safety of your child. I am not saying that all unlicensed daycare providers are this way but what is the downfall in NOT BEING LICENSED? Besides, being a licensed daycare provider will get you more business. When parents are looking for daycare they usually call the state licensing office for a list of providers in their area. And to be on the side of the licensed providers, I give them much credit for dealing with the crap that they have to go through in order to be a LIGITIMATE LICENSED DAYCARE PROVIDER. My neighbor is also a non-licensed daycare provider and it erks me to no end that she provides daycare to other peoples children when she neglects the 3 kids she has (ages 10, 6, ans 3). I can say this because she pawns her kids as well as her daycare kids off in my yard so that they can play with my children and I end up watching them so that they don't get hurt, while she sits on her A** all day with her husband (who doesn't work because he was fired for watching **** on the computer at his job). This is one of those reasons why I say GET A LICENSED DAYCARE PROVIDER so that everyone that is around your children can be checked out. Better to be safe then sorry. Your child only has 1 life!!!

Ok.....I had an unlicensed daycare. Prior to opening mine, I worked in a LICENSED home daycare! First off there are pros and cons to BOTH!!! I saw a lot of things at the licensed home and thought nope! So I started my own....I kept 3 children and ran it as if it were licensed. I also provided a curriculum for the kids. We learned Spanish as well. We played, had routines, did school, music time, reading time, prayer, etc. The families I had did not want a big licensed home. Some prefer small and some prefer big. My example for this was....the place I worked at prior was licensed with 16 kids. We were full!! However she had her own kids as who was 17 at the time and 19 now I believe and not any different. He was great with kids but he had an anger problem, alcohol, and drug problem!!! Guess what....she's licensed and gets inspected and no one even knows!!!! Again it's all about the CHARACTER OF THE PERSON, CARE PROVIDED, CLEANLINESS, AND EXPERIENCE! You have to know what to look for in a provider!!! (also...I was CPR/First Aid certified, SID Certified, etc....I chose to take classes)
