Open a Child Care Center
Have you dreamed of owning your own small business with opportunities to grow and become a cornerstone of your community? Owning and operating a child care center can be an opportunity to do just that. If you are ready to dive in, we can help you through the process and to gain the skills you need to be as successful.
Child care centers can operate out of a church, school or stand-alone business locations. They have multiple staff including administrators, teachers, cooks and maybe even a bus driver. These programs are typically licensed to care for more than 13 or more children at one time based on ratios of teachers to children and the required space.
Reasons to open a child care center:
- You love children and want to ensure children in your care receive the critical quality early education and care they need to thrive.
- You can take care of your own children as part of your business.
- It’s an opportunity to play a key role in the lives of the children in your care and fill an essential role in the community.
- You have the opportunity to mentor staff who work at your center
Here are resources to help you work through the licensing process.
