I rent a house where they will let me run an in home child care. I'd love to do it, but I find myself hesitant as my yard space is VERY limited. All of it is on the outside edge of the house as I live on a corner lot. The yard extends approximately 10-15 feet from the house, ends in a sidewalk with a boulevard. I'm worried about the kids going beyond the sidewalk when I don't notice as most of the kids I'll service will probably be between the ages of 1 and 5.
I cannot afford to fence the yard, unless it's a cheaper fencing that I can use. I do not want to put it up and take it down constantly as I don't see myself having time for that.
We do have a park nearby, three blocks, but the city filled the playground with sand...
Thank you for your thoughts and input!

Depending on your state regulations, and what your land lord says, some fencing is inexpensive. I have a post and rail fence, and my licenser just made me add chicken wire to the bottom half to keep kids from sneaking underneath it. I was worried I would have to replace with picket fence or stockade or something, which was out of my budget, but she found an easy solution for me.

Give your office a call and see what the requirements are and then go from there. Good luck!

I just fenced in a 60x40ft area with 4ft wooden picket fencing for $400.

A chain link would have been half that.

Worth the liability and to have a designated place to play.

Before you fence be sure to check license requirements if you plan to be licensed. There may be a minimum space requirement.
