Tell me more: Twenty four states allow providers to care for five or more children before a license is required. Additionally, licenses are relatively easy to obtain for those who are interested.
What does it entail? Caring for infants, toddlers and preschoolers while their parents are working.
How much can I make? Childcare services generally range from $100-$250 a week per child depending on the child’s age and your location. For example, according to The National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies, in 2009, the average annual cost of care for an infant in a family child care home ranged from $3,582 in South Carolina to $11,940 in Massachusetts.
Where are the jobs? If you are licensed with your state, the state will list you if people call looking for daycare homes. Additionally: Craigslist.org, word of mouth, posting flyers.
