Default Florida Laws

Could someone give me information on home daycare laws in Florida? We are considering a move there, and would like to be able to decide if I should take all my supplies or sell them and look elsewhere. Thanks!

Here is the state page: https://www.myflfamilies.com/service...esources.shtml

These were their "considerations"

It is recommended the child care facility have sufficient open space to accommodate strict staff/child ratios. The number of children for which you can provide care (capacity) is based on 35 square feet of usable floor space per child per room, excluding restrooms, hallways, offices or storage closets.

If the facility will be on a septic tank, an inspection of the system must be completed by your local environmental health department. The capacity of the septic system may limit the number of children and staff allowed to occupy the building.

Outdoor play space must be available at the location with a minimum of four foot fence and must be at least 45 square feet per child for 1/2 half the maximum capacity of the facility, excluding children under 1 year of age in the calculation. Shade must be available.

Furnishings and play equipment must be appropriate and safe for the ages served. Toys must be clean. The facility must provide bedding, such as cots, or mats at least 1" thick with an impermeable surface. It is strongly recommended that no commitments toward any location/property be made until careful consideration of all structural requirements and childcare regulations are scrutinized.
