Default Newbie to the Site & to Daycare

Hello everyone! I live in Salt Lake City, UT. I am a stay at home mom and want to keep it that way! I currently babysit one toddler now but I am thinking of adding more kids, advertising and getting a part time helper. So I hope I can find some good information about all of this. I am mostly concerned on if I need a license or not.... if I need to register my business.

Any direction as to where to start for UT would be great!

Can't wait to see more on this site!

Default Thanks guys!

Thank you for the welcome!

I would prefer not to do a license. I was thinking 5 kids... now you said under 5 kids you don't need a license. Is that 5 kids total or once you hit 5 you have to get a license?
