This was a great look into starting a family day care. It covers a lot of information, and goes into depth about a lot of issues caregivers run into. This book is a great buy for anyone thinking of opening their own family day care!

Very useful for starting a Day-Care business but is focused on Family Child Care and not on large scale commercial centers. However, the author covers a broad range of issues from Financial, Managerial, Human Resources to activities for the children and problem solving. Start Your Own Child -Care Service by Entrepreneur Press and Jacquelyn Lynn is also a good resource and complement to this book for anyone thinking or planning of starting a daycare whether small or large scale.
