  • Use Craigs list to advertize. That's what my friend does. However you should get licensed ASAP otherwise they could find out shut you down and not let you re-open. I don't want to scare you I just don't want anyone to get in trouble. GOOD LUCK!!

  • I had a neighbor ask me if I would like to watch her son. So maybe ask a neighbor with kids.
    This was 5 yrs ago, I have had 8 children that I have watched in the pass. At this time I am watching 3 children.

  • I started my own in home day care - by asking other "in-home" providers. I live in AZ - and we have a program called Arizona childcare resource and referal, I just went to talk to them, got figerprinted, took a cpr and first aid class. Than i was ok for private pay.. You can also speak with the local DES office, they would have steps to help you get set up! ~Rachel
