Can I open an in-home daycare if I live in Texas?

I found something on the DFPS website that says after September 1,2003, a daycare cannot be run out of the same location as the owners residential address. Is this true or are there ways around it like if you have 12 or more kids then it has to be outside of your residence or something like that?

Im looking to open a daycare and that would be the quickest and easiest way until i can save up money and rent a house that I can use solely for the purpose of a daycare
