There are 2 of us that use this user id.

We are currently caring for a total of 9 children, some are part time and most are full time. We are licensed for up to 12 which we will have the beginning of next year when some of our moms have babies. Current ages range from 9 months to 10 years.

We are in W. Michigan too!!

I'm from Ohio. I have 3 boys of my own (ages 2, 6 & 8- older two are in school all-day).
As of next week I will only have one family & I am VERY HAPPY about that. My family is an 8 year old who is here before & after school, an almost 2 year old & 2 days a week I have their four year old daughter. So on any given day the most I have during the day is 3 & I like that very much! :-)

The weather has been + 9 or higher for 10 days straight here. Most of the snow is gone in our yard. We are all loving it - it is so nice to be able to go out at any time.

I'm also from Minnesota and have been in family childcare since 1989. My own kids are 23 and 21 year old boys and 17 year old girl, so we are almost empty-nesters

My daycare group for the summer is a full load~14 everyday :-)

9 full time, ranging in age from 7 months to 8 years
7 part time, ranging in age from 15 months to 10 years

A nice mix of boys and girls, part time and full time so there is never a dull moment around here!

I also have an assistant from 9am to 4pm, M-F along with my dd and husband.

Northeast Georgia, ages 6 weeks to 4 years.

Allowed 6 for pay, up to 12 onsite within age ratios. Just enough to confuse Einstein...

With summer here, I am caring for 6 for pay, 2 for "no pay" as professional courtesy (teachers that had to take summer jobs due to furloughs, unforeseen).
