Types of Child Care Businesses To Start-up

Do you have a love for children? Have you thought about starting a childcare business? Not sure which business type will be profitable or suitable for you? Let's take a look at some statistics and review the various types of childcare businesses.

According to the 1984 U.S. Census Bureau report, Who's Minding the Kids?, parents generally
select one of three types of child care facilities: family care, home care or day-care center. There are,
however, other child care programs available, including the following:

Family care -- A program designed to provide care for toddlers in the homes of
other mothers.

Home care -- A nanny or sitter cares for and supervises a child in the child's home.

 Day-care and child development centers -- Programs designed to respond to the
stages of physical, emotional, social and intellectual growth and behavior of infants
and children.

 Child care development home -- A private residence for up to five children, with no
more than two infants in the group.

 Infant care center -- A child development center that cares for infants and toddlers
(children two years old or younger).

Before- and after-school care -- A program providing care for school-age children
before and after the regular school day in a child development center or home.

 Satellite child development program -- A private residence linked with a child
development center or an agency that receives technical assistance and support,
training, recruiting and placement.

Nursery school -- Usually a part-time preschool child development center operating
during the school year.

Which business type do you think best suits you? Are you ready to start the planning process?
