I am doing the in home care provider training. In the military FCC providers are parents like me that want to make money while staying at home with their own child. I will be going through training classes, background checks,inspections etc etc...before this happens, but I want to start getting the apartment ready now. I plan to do infants-preschooler age and can have a maximum of 6 kids (including my own daughter) For any of you familiar with FCC providers , what types of things in the house should I expect the inspectors to look for and want changed? I was thinking of cutting our living in half, ..half stays the same family room/tv area, the other half becomes nothing but toys/kid stuff/her mini kitchen comes out here etc. they provide me with a crib which Im gonna have to fit somewhere, I am praying they give me a travel crib so I can take it down everyday.
What stuff should I expect from all of this? How did you set up your place if you did this? I wish we had a basement or large unused area, but we really don't. I can do half the living room and of course our daughters room.

I had looked into doing that once. From what I learned in the process was they are basically looking for your home to be clean and secure. Make sure all cords are taped down and secure, cabinets have locks on them, plugs in the electrically outlet, etc. As far as the toys and stuff, we had an extra room that I was going to have everything in. Is that a possibility for you?
