I want to convert my garage into a daycare area in Missouri. I have not found the licensing regulations. Would someone please help me?

I put central heat/AC on separate wiring, a portable handwashing sink, 2 inch padded vinyl flooring, and a new insulated garage door. I was able to skip the toilet due to the short distance to the one in the family room. The state would not budge on the "warm running water" handwashing sink in the main playroom, though. Your state rules sound similar to mine.
