Hi all,
What do you have for insurance rates? I'm just getting started with the process to become registered and want to look at proper insurance but I'm scared to see how much it costs! I have read a bit about additional liability on an existing policy or getting a completely separate daycare insurance policy. Can anyone shed some light?

I'm curious too. My Homeowners Association wants to be listed on our policy...but under California law they are responsible for any additional charges it will cost me. I'm not licensed yet, so I don't know what the costs will be.

Before I was licensed I was able to add it through my homeowners insurance for $89/year. It covered up to 4 kids.
Once I got licensed & added more kids it went up to about $650/year. The homeowners add on was very basic & not the. Best coverage.

Good luck!

I have a fcc w/ a limit of 6 kids and my insurance co quoted around $290 a year. I also have my homeowners insurance through them if that makes a difference.

Here's a link to a national insurance directory with companies that offer insurance to family child care providers:

I was just quoted over $800/yr for my van in addition to my personal auto policy. Seems high for the usage (I live 1 mile from school.) since my personal policy is $814/yr with 3 vehicles, 2 of which have full coverage. The hunt for liability insurance is turning into a time consuming nightmare.

When I called to ask my homeowners ins company about daycare insurance they told me they would not insure me and the next month I got a letter saying they would not renew my coverage .
