If my husband wanted to stay home with me and do daycare unlic. is that legal. I thought AZ law only allowed (me) to run a unlic. daycare permitting 4 income children plus my 2 children with out being lic. If my husband decided to do daycare with me that would allow 4 more income children...which makes 8. Could I do this legally in AZ or do I have to be lic. to do that with 2 adults? Sorry if I worded this wrong. We where just talking about it as some of you wonderful ladies mentioned it but I wasn't sure....

2. Allow a volunteer qualified as a director, teacher-caregiver, or a assistant-teacher caregiver to be counted as staff in staff-to-children ratios; and
3. Not allow a student-aide or an individual qualified as a teacher-caregiver-aide to be counted as staff in staff-to-children ratios.
