Licensed.

I can have 8 kids four and under, and 4 kids four and over. 12 total.

Once my baby comes I can have baby, 6 kids four and under, and 4 kids four and older. 11 total, unless I have an assistant then the ratio can be 12 infants if I wanted it to be.

I currently have 9 children enrolled (two are part-time). I cut 3 and 1 is leaving for a special education program.

I am licensed.

I can have 6 total at one time.

Of those 6:

No more than 2 can be under 18 months

No more than 2 can be between 18 & 30 months.

Ex: I have 3 under 18 months enrolled but can only have 2 of the 3 here at the same time.

I am a nanny but I work out of my home. I watch one little boy and every other week watch a friend's foster baby for two hours while she goes to an appointment. My own kids are 6 and in first grade, so I drop them off at school, pick up nanny kid at his house, have a fun day, pick my kids up at school and then his mom picks him up from my house.

ETA: I can have up to 5 kids and still be unlicensed as long as my own kids are school age. If they weren't, they would have to be counted in that 5.

Licensed. Here you can only care for 1 unrelated family if you aren't licensed. I can have 12. 2 school age, 10 under school age with 2 under 2, but only 1 can be an infant.

I am running under a different license for a few more months tho which gives me 10 total. 2 SA, 8 under SA age with 3 being under 2, but no more than 2 infants.

I have 5 full-time and 1 part-time currently.

Technically: Certified not Licensed, but from what the state is saying it all changes next year to Licensed.

I can have 6 at one time with no more than 3 under the age of 2

I am Listed-which is what you guys call legally unlicensed. I am signed up with DFPS and hubby and I have had background checks. I'm not allowed on the food program and can only have 3 children. (Not sure if my own kids would count since I don't have any still at home.)

state registered for 12 kids.

Can have 4 under 2 years old and only 2 of those can be under 1 yr old.

Currently only have 6 full time kids and am very happy with those numbers since I run my daycare similar to a preschool. I'm also licensed for foster care so I try to leave spots open in my daycare for foster children. (licensed to care for up to 4 foster children.)

Just got Licensed last week! I was only registered at first...biggest difference is the number of kids I can care for at once...with or with a helper.

Since I have four of my own...I will always be limited...but with the older three in school I can fill spaces from 7am-4pm...so going Licensed will pay off once I can get families only needing care between 7am-4pm sharp!. Teacher kids would be great so when school is out I'm not over...wish me luck.

I am a nanny right now. My husband and I just bought a house with a finished basement, with the intentions of opening a licensed daycare within the year.

I am legally unlicensed -
I can have 4 children. Should I choose to be licensed due to my 4 children, 3 that would count towards daycare when they are here I can still only have 4 (total 7). So at this time the licensing agent said that it would be in my best interest to not be licensed (crazy I know).

I have had no problems getting clients. I would like to think because I have had wonderful tips from this site and I have created all of the necessary documents to protect myself and my clients. My daycare area is clean, trendy, and well stocked with everything needed. The fact that I treat my daycare as a business, starting out on the right foot, I think will keep me busy and full.
