How can I start my home daycare?

by Jessica Cole
(Grunthal Manitoba, Canada)


Hello my name is Jessica. I’m a parent of a 1 year old daughter and I’m finishing school in June. I’m done with grade 12 and I don’t want to go to college or work. I want to stay with my daughter as much as I can so I thought this would work. However I’m on welfare and when you’re on welfare you can only make $100 a month, so that isn’t going to do us. I’m pregnant again so now I need it asap ( I’m 3 months- just found out) so I was thinking- should I make a website and then start putting my ad on kijiji and the market or things like that with everything on there, or not? I’m not sure just yet, but I was thinking of doing this since I’m still in school – possibly from 4 pm -8 pm- would be good or should I wait till my other one comes into this world? I’m ready, I know I am, but I don’t want to start too soon… but I also need the money! Can you please help? Thank you


Hi Jessica,
I can understand why you want to stay home with your children. The child care business is a solution for many moms who do. I am unfamiliar with Canada’s welfare system and I would strongly suggest you check with them on their rules and regulations. You will also want to check to see the requirements you may need to become a child care provider where you live. Once you check into these things I would suggest you check out my book-
In Home Child Care Business. A Quick Start Guide!
I wrote the book for women like you that want to become child care providers and get a quick start at it… as well as the RIGHT START. It’s a fast read filled with valuable information on methods and techniques that work the first time. I also go into great detail on advertising yourself. I suggest you try this first before you go to the hard work, expense, and hours of building a website to advertise yourself.

Thank you for your questions,

Best of luck…
