Exclamation I Am Thinking Of Starting A Daycare. I Been Looking Around The Daycare Forum..

I am thinking of starting a daycare. I been looking around the daycare forum but I am confused in what is the first step in starting a daycare? It can not be a home daycare because I do not own my home. I looked into franchising but they want way to much. Buying and existing daycare would be my preference however I been looking online without much help. Anyone know the best place or way to find daycare for sale?

I am willing to relocate for the right career position. I have experience in daycare I have done every job in a daycare center at some point. I do appreciate your incites and help. How did you know were to start when opening a daycare. What government agency did you contact first and why? I currently live in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. I have worked in daycares in the suburbs and the city. Currently I am the director of a daycare in the city.

I pm'ed you several days ago about this.

If you want to start a center, I recommended exploring buying a residential home that could be eligible for zoning change. Or commercial leases. If you have your heart set on buying an existing daycare, try a local business broker. I would not want the baggage of an existing center that is failing or floundering though.

I know for a fact you can do childcare out of a rental... heck I did it as my job in a Hud townhouse with their approval in Galena IL - I even took vouchers. Pretty sure you can do it in Chicagoland too
