Baby sitting laws??

So I was looking into watching a few kids in my home and I found out that there is different laws in each state regarding this. Does anyone know if it is legal in the state of Georgia to take in 4-6 kids? I wanted to get 2 or 3 kids for first shift and 2-3 kids for second shift. I already have a few requests to watch some of my husbands coworkers children, but before I agree to take them in I want to know if I am doing something illegal... Thank you for all responses and information.

  • In Georgia, you can legally watch 2 kids (that are not your own) at a time without being licensed. So if you have 2 kids from 7-3, then you can have two different kids from 3-11. For more info about this check out this website-
