Firstly, consider contact the state revenue office to check and regulations and laws regarding daycare centres in your region. You must follow the guidelines provided by the state regulations to avoid losing your business. Typically, these guidelines will tell you how much square footage per child will be needed, qualification of the teachers you will hires, medical aides requirements and feeding schedule.
Consider writing a business plan carefully taking state regulations into account. You must show this plan to the bank or creditors for obtaining the financial backing. Unless you have prepared an effective business plan, your application for loan will not be approved.
Finding a bank or lender who can offer you loan for starting a daycare business is not too difficult. You must consider speaking to a number of banks to get competitive interest rates. By starting from your home or a church, the start up cost can be reduced significantly.
You may also wish to rent a place for the daycare centre. Consider speaking to the property dealers to find a suitable place for your business. Purchase all the required equipments including tables, chairs, kitchen accessories, furniture, computer, laptop and some toys for the children. The daycare centre should be ready before the first child comes through the door.
Hire teachers, following the guidelines handed out by the regulatory body. Start marketing your business to attract potential customers.
