  • Do you plan on paying taxes? Are you going to get licensed or at least cpr certified?

  • I think the best way to get kids is by word of mouth. Let the school know and parents at school when they are picking up their kids that you are looking for 2 children to watch during the day. They may know parents ho are currently looking. Hang up flyers at places like the local gymnastics club. Around here people pay $25/day for childcare but it veries ALOT by region so see what other people are paying and what daycares are charging.
