That is the state link. I know in NYS you can only 2 at a time (and that inculdes relatives children) without being licensed.

It varies by county on how many kids you can watch. You can watch as many kids as you want as long as they are related to you as in your neice nephew granchild. Your cousins kids would not count as they are not directly related to you. One lady watches her 6 grandkids and she is a legally exempt childcare provider. Which means she is not registered or licensed. Every county has their own child care group. Like Steuben County calls it the child care project. Chemung County calls it child care council. They are under Rochester. They offer the classes you would need to be a family daycare provider.

I was a legally exempt child care provider up until we bought our own home a few years ago. Now Im registered and licensed.

 Our pennysaver under the "child care" runs the following: In NYS, child care providers, who care for more than two children, other than their own, are required to be registered with the NYS Office of Children and Family Services. For more information on Child Care Regulations, parents and providers can call: Child Care Solutions.

HMM I wonder if they changed it. Before Lily was born I was watching my twin nephews Bren and Al. My nephew Mayson and my niece Maddie. at the same time. The twins are my older sisters boys. Mayson and Maddie are my younger sisters kids. The lady who did daycare acroos the street from me called OCFS on me, saying I was running a daycare out of my apartment and wanted to know if I was registered or licensed. Which at the time I was not. I was legally exempt. A guy from OCFS came out asked for proof that they were my nephews and nieces and left. A few days later I got a letter stating the complaint and their findings. Which is that all children in my care are direct relatives no action required.

 I also got information on classes I could take as a legally exempt provider and the food program was available to legally exempt providers.
