I am starting a in home day care and I have a few questions! Thanks for your help!

I am going to start a in home day care. Does anyone know how many children you can watch in (Lusby) Maryland without being registered? I plan on getting registered but I am just curious to know. Also I have heard that you can get free grants and different things to help with your in home day care. Where would I find the information for this? Thanks for all your help!

  • I'm sure your state government website has some rules and regulations you could find.

    In MI, it's a 6:1 ratio.
