How to start daycare, Welcome
Do you know about SCORE. SCORE can help and is FREE.
If you are exploring your options to raise money, you need a Business and Marketing Plan.
Investors or lenders will not consider providing money to you unless you have a plan.
Good luck, LUCKIEST
I went to SCORE and they were no help. I went to the one in Charlotte. They tried to connect me to a mentor that had no interest in me nor my project. I have been very disillusioned with the lack of help you get when you have no starting funds. I like you are in the same boat. Wanting to start up a daycare with no money. Good luck. If I have a break through I will let you know.
My mother use to run a daycare when I was younger. We use to live in a two story house, with a pretty large open basement. She turned the basement into a daycare by adding carpet, removing dangerous object, putting up spelling pictures on the wall. It started out by networking with her friends who also had kids and parents that I went to school with and grew from there. But she closed it down once I was too old for daycare.
But could be one way of doing it.
If you have a lot of available space that's a good start. It's important, like you say, that there are no dangerous items around. It helps too to have proper daycare furniture[/url]
for the children. Also, you need to find out all of the rules and regulations for doing it before you invest any money in it. There are a lot of hoops to jump through before you can start up.
