Q: How much money can I feasibly make doing daycare in my home?
When you choose to stay home and start an in home daycare, you can easily make the equivalent of $2,000.00 a month, and in some cases even MORE!
According to a Wall Street Journal article in October of 2002: “Child-care costs vary widely based on the quality, type of operator and region. However, average prices are roughly $6,000 to $9,000 a year for child-care centers, $3,600 to $7,800 for a family child-care home, and $18,000 to $30,000 for a live-in nanny, based on interviews with providers.”
So even if your state allows you to take care of a minimum of four children, and you were in the median range of the figures given above, you would be able to make better money staying at home, raising your own children, than if you were working a low wage job outside your home — while someone else raises your children.

It is very important to check with friends, your pediatrician and people you work with in order to get referrals for quality centers. Ask the managers of the centers that you are considering if they are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children or if they are accredited by the National Association of Family Childcare.
Ask the facility manager for information pertaining to the experience of the teachers, the food items they serve for lunch, the ratio of children to teacher. Find out if they offer a variety of activities and if they are flexible enough to meet your needs such as being a little late once in a while to pick up your child.
