You have a good thing going with the lunch situation! That is really the only time now that I feel a bit overwhelmed. Just trying to monitor the playroom while making lunch. Sometimes my dh will make pancakes for the dcks for breakfast, and it is the highlight of everyone's day.

I used to have 10-12 dcks, including SA's, but now just preschool age. I have six kids, ages 2-4. I am a registered child care home in Texas.

Great post--I will enjoy seeing all the different programs we have here.

Large family child care in California

child care is in separated addition attached to my home

16 children enrolled. (Full time and part time)

6:1 ratio so I have an assistant daily

I have 6-10 children daily. I take referrals from friends in special education so I have an above average number of kids with special needs. I typically maintain lower numbers.

Youngest is 18 months oldest is 6 yrs.

Small, home based Christian program.
Legally unlicensed and allowed 2 kids in addition to my own. Our own do not count in numbers unless we become liscesned.
Currently have 4 kids, my own 3 and 1 dcb. Had a second kiddo get done around my third child's birth and well, I've been extremely picky about who I fill the spot with lol. Honestly, I'm enjoying a lighter day right now! I homeschool as well. Youngest is 2 months, then 20 months, almost 3 and 4.5. I accept kids 6 weeks-5yrs.

I work alone.

Home childcare provider in Ottawa, Canada with a background in Early Childhood Education.

In Ontario you can only care for 5 children (even with an assistant- 5 is the absolute maximum...) and you must count your own kids under 6 years. Max of 2 under 2 years as well.

My ages are 3, 2, 2, 1, and my own 4 month old daughter.

My basement is a dedicated daycare space.

Hours are from 7:30-5:00

Registered Home daycare, we're allowed 6 FT and 4 SA. Right now I'm down to 5 because one is out til April. The past several summers I've had 10 dcks and I'm so tired of it.
I have a smallish home, 960 sq.' and use the whole main floor for dc because it's just me and my pups.
Ages are 19 mo twins, 2 1/2, almost 3, and 4. All girls. In fact, except for 1 SA dcb who probably won't be coming again, I've had just girls for maybe 3 years. Dcm who just had a baby and will be starting at some point, had a girl. Phew.

I am in Minnesota. Have 9 kids enrolled.

I have 1 other enrolled as a drop in.

I am doing it on my own, running around most of the day like a wild women. I have recording video monitors in ALL of my rooms used for daycare. Helps with behavior issues knowing they are ALWAYS watched, and I can show mom and dad the video of them being naughty.
