I really want to open a center, but I have no idea where to start looking for a building. I have in-home childcare for 4 years now (Licensed) and want to expand. I know licensing process,but first I need a building.
If you have any ideas please help.

I took a class way back when, I can't remember the name of it, but it went over everything one would need to do to open a center.
We had to go through the process of a business plan, designing a building, initial investment budget (that was not fun), daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly budgets (it's amazing how those things can change on you), paper work for small business loan, job requirements for all the staff, schedules, policies, rates, advertising, insurance, unemployment insurance, social security, who's going to do the lawn care or shovel the parking lot, zoning laws, janitor or cleaning service...........It was a lot.
The whole semester class was just to make a binder that you could present to the local small business association. All that and there were still gaps on how to run even a home daycare.
Anyway, I guess my point is, it might be a good idea to look into a class at the local community college.
Even if you have a BS in Early Childhood or even an MS, if I remember correctly this class was only a requirement for us suckers settling for an AS in Early Childhood.
Also if your local CCR&R is offering QRS classes on the business and environmental ratings, there's a lot of great information there on what is required.
