THINK LIKE A BUSINESS OWNER
It is often hard to think about your family childcare program as a business for many reasons:
• You childcare is conducted in your home
• It may include caring for your own children
• You may care for family member’s children
• You often form close relationships and even friendships with the families of the children you care for
• You may care for close friend’s children
All businesses have rules and regulations they must abide by. Just like any other business, there are many regulations you have to obey.
