Starting a Daycare - Five Little Known Facts
If you were going to ask your friends, “could you make a living at doing childcare out of
your home?” What do you think they would say?
Chances are they would say no way, but I'm here to tell you different. In fact I'm here to
educate you as to the vast amount of potential that lies within this small business. I've
always been a believer in doing the opposite as everyone else. When you zag I zig.
I've talked to a lot of people out there, some who stay home and make no money and others
who desperately want to stay home and create some type resemblance of order in their life.
Daycare business is a serious business, it's not babysitting or taking care of a couple of
kids here and there. It's about running a profitable small business that provides a viable income.
Below you will discover interesting fact's regarding childcare.
Fact number 1 : It Really Takes No Money To Start Up This Business
I think this has to be one of the few businesses out there that you can start up for next
to nothing. Just think about this for a minute, maybe you have children's items lying
around in your basement that no one is using. The funny thing is most daycares utilize the
items that around 90 percent of most households. This would include, couches, small tables,
sleeping bags, and of course T.V sets. And in case you don't have any toy's and books, you
can always visit the local library and area rummage sales.
Fact number 2 : Almost Everything is Tax Deductible
Just about everything you use in your house is tax deductible and I mean just about
everything! You can also think about tax deductible purchases such as that new couch you
bought this year that children sit on, or how about your cell phone bill that parents call
you up on. If a household expense can some how relate to your childcare business, than you
can write it off.
Fact number 3 : How Much Money Do DayCare's Really Make?
Here's the real surprise, are you sitting? I made over $90,000 in my daycare last year.
Not to shabby, why do you think we hate being called babysitters? When was the last time
you met a babysitter that made that kind of money?
Fact number 4 : Who Is Doing All The Work In The Daycare?
A lot of family daycares employ assistants who help out with Daycare children. While the
assistants are working you are doing more important things. Perhaps, caring for your own
children, making money at other things, or out just plain out having fun. I work at my
daycare perhaps 5 hours per week which gives me lot's of time to pursue other adventures.
Fact number 5 : You Can Start Your Business Today, and Collect Cash Tomorrow
That really the reality of it all, it's easy to find children to enroll as well. Tell your
friends, visit your area schools and churches. Everyone is looking for good childcare and
particularly someone they can trust. Why not you?
As you can see, day care is a real business. A lot of people out there are successful and
really, are making a lot of money.
