In California, a licensed family childcare can operate 24 hours a day/7 days a week. I personally know several providers who have burnt out quickly offering that type of care, so have a plan for getting you time in if you are going to offer it. (eg: hiring someone to fill in for you so you can get out of the house)

I am not great at finding old threads on this board but I know there are lots of sample contracts in the old threads. Hopefully, someone better at finding threads will come on and post. In the meantime, here is a resource you may find helpful.

You need to go to the State of MI website and go through everything you need to do be licensed. It can take between 60-120 days. You need to take a day long class and have an on-site visit where someone from the state will let you know if you are in compliance and can open.

Every child has to have a minimum of 35 sq feet, too. And they do measure.
