Hi! I've been lurking around the boards and finally decided to register! I'm a SAHM of 3, and I'm looking to open my own Family Home Center. I've been doing research and preparing for almost a year now, and look to be open in the next 9 months!

I am 66, been in ECE all my life, and have been wanting to do family child care since I had my own children. I'm finally doing it. I've been going to orientations and doing research for several years while working. I even moved to a better DC house last year. My house is ready now and I'm advertising.

The biggest glitch has been the zoning board. They denied my application and failed to give a reason. I had to get a lawyer and appeal to find a rather made-up reason. (Age discrimination? Politics? Petty bureaucracy?) I fought back and searched for support, and now the commissioners have approved me if I make one more (unnecessary) parking space in my driveway by moving my gate to the backyard, and we are waiting for a judge to sign something. It has cost thousands of dollars, and I can totally see why some providers don't get a license! But I am determined to get licensed, and I'm can't wait to get started. (I can care for three without the license in PA).

Good luck to you, and I hope you don't run into any expensive and silly obstacles!
