Because parents must work outside the home, there will always be a demand for childcare. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 64 percent of married-couple families, both husband and wife work outside the home. There are nearly 12 million children under the age of five in child care each week in the United States. With concerns about quality child care, the trend is to move away from large operations and turn to the small services located close by work or home.

This increase in small day care operations creates a huge opportunity for someone who loves children and wants to create a business dedicated to taking care of them. A child care service makes an ideal home based or part-time business. Start-up costs are low. You do not need an office. You do not need any costly special equipment.

All you need to get started is an approved facility and a desire to succeed. Here is the manual you need to be successful in this highly profitable segment of the service industry.
