I don't want to see anything happen to these children, but I just want people to know just how much trouble you can get in if you're not covered by a license if one of the kids gets hurt. It's for the kids and for your protection as well because these matters can turn sour quickly if you're running something illegal, we are talking jail time even for accidents so be smart people. That's all I'm saying.
That is the dumbest thing I ever heard. I am unlicensed and guess what? All of my cats are fixed. Including the eight week old one that my daughter adopted last week. He got fixed this week. Of course I also pay my taxes and follow all the laws for being unlicensed but that probably doesn't count for anything with you either.

Hmmm?

All happened.

Is it MY business then?

YOUR business should not interfere with me or my residence. If and when it does, then it becomes MY business.

These rules and regulations exist for a reason.

Oh, and btw, I happened to run a LICENSED home daycare for several years. So, yes, you better believe I will report anything not on the up-and-up.
Wow! You really ARE just sour!! AND jealous, OBVIOUSLY! You're TOTALLY not concerned with the children's well-being AT ALL. You're just trying to get them out of business so it'll come TO YOU! What a horrible person and neighbor you are! unbelievable!

I don't mind you having your opinion but being unregistered gives you less say here. Don't hide behind the computer screen. Become a member and add to the conversation. I will not put up with trolls and you are heading that way and fast.

Thank you.. Some people running a licensed daycare are abusive to children and the parents are fooled, foolish or ignore the problem. People of any age can be great care providers and people also often look down on younger providers, but I believe they have more energy and patients for children and what children need. When kids are young they don't get a say and coming from an abusive childhood where people are more concerned about what isn't there business than what should be like a good neighbor for years who ignores the abuse of their neighbors children because they "don't want to get in the middle of it" and then there are both sides who suffer because the inosent people get accused for things they aren't doing wrong and the people who should be accused for what they're doing wrong go Scott free. This seems to be the case with so many situations.

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!!! A caring mother in Laurel, Delaware.

That first line is so ignorant. I am unlicensed because 1) I cannot afford upfront all the fees and classes necessary to become licensed. We live paycheck to paycheck as it is. 2) I can not work a regular job because LICENCED providers in my area have been completely unreliable costing me two job already. 3) I am so much reliable and a better provider then the LICENCED providers, that two of parents came because of neglect to their kids from previous providers (one has a permanent burn scar on her hand for the rest of her life). They recommend me all the time to their friends (they both work in the medical field) and I have had to turn people down all the time now because I cannot take on any more kids. 4) paid my taxes last year and plan to so again this year. 5) Youve are honestly coming off as jealous and may be trying to run someone off so you can shut them down and take their business because sadly they are better then you even while being unlicensed. Sad little woman you are

Before looking for a licensed provider or an educated provider, I'd want one that is mature enough to make her point with resorting to name calling.

Are you legally unlicensed, or illegally?

Default Ridiculous

Reading through these posts just makes my blood boil. There are so many assumptions and accusations from some people, it's ignorant! I have been a foster parent for 11 years and an UNLICENSED daycare provider for 13. NEVER have I gone over the amount of children I am allowed to have. I follow the EXACT same nutritional guidelines, safety and sleep guidelines. Once children turn two they begin learning basic shapes, colors, matching, etc. When they turn three they continue to build on those basics and at age four they begin a preschool readiness program. Just because I am not licensed BY CHOICE does not mean I don't take my profession and the safety of the children I'm responsible for seriously!! I've had parents come to me because I am NOT licensed. For four years now I've had a two year waiting list!! STOP MAKING ASSUMPTIONS!!!!

If you are not required to be licensed, then none of the statements and so called "assumptions" in this thread apply to you.

If you ARE required to be licensed but aren't (for whatever reason) you ARE operating illegally and NOTHING you do makes any difference..... illegal is illegal. period.

Default unlicensed child care

I agree. I am just starting to sit for a few children. My experiences are 1) school bus driver 14 years have been CPR & first aide carded for all of them. 2) I have been a title one tutor in two states for 1st -2nd graders reading and math; 3rd-5th graders reading and math. 3) I was also a noon monitor all elementary age plus detention monitor elementary all age. Don't judge anyone caring for children until you do your home work. I am caring for a spouse who was hit with dementia at the age of 54 he is now 59. The system we live in literally broke me to help him. We live on $808 a month, could you do that? I became a displaced worker in 2013 and decided to take care of him (no nursing homes). I am not allowed to do anything to make our lives better or SSI will take it from him. How does that work, so I am caring for a couple of children so I can better his life. In the meantime the children I will care for has the benefit of some one who loves children, cares about them learning things in life, and treats them like family. All the children I have worked with over my career still remember me and that is the greatest feeling in the world and speaks for itself.

And another thing, you don't have to "licensed" to take child care courses! I am certified CPR (Adult, infant and child) and i also have 15 years of education all related to my career. All paid for out of my pocket! I have excellent references and a clean background. Oh ya, and i did nanny for 5 years for a family. I'm sorry but just because i don't hold that LICENSE doesn't mean that I am uneducated or a bad daycare provider. FYI: i haven't had to advertise for 5 years now, i operate on word of mouth and i also have a 6 month waiting list. Hows that for UNLICENSED.

Read again, the negative statements were regarding ILLEGAL providers. What you're doing is legally unlicensed care.

There is a difference between being unlicensed and illegal in some states. I think if we specified legal vs illegal it would be more clear....rather than licensed vs unlicensed since we are from many different places.
