Our licencing office doesn't exactly promote getting a business name, but we can do it. We just have to apply for the business name officially and submit the approval.
I'm sure if you file for an official DBA you can have your license changed to reflect your DBA. Without an official DBA you can only operate under the name on your license.
I guess I need to check with the state of Kansas to be sure. On our license it has our names listed under "Licensee", and then it has "Facility" which has the name of our daycare under that. If I remember correctly, if we ever change the name of our business then we would have to go through the whole process of reapplying and paying the fees associated with that, and I think an initial inspection too because they will treat us as a brand new daycare. I just need to contact them to see what they say.
