When starting a daycare business, two options are available. Either start your business from home as a home daycare, or start a center in a commercial location. Both options have their own advantages and disadvantages that you should be aware of.

Home Daycare


    Less expensive to start. Compared to starting a daycare center, a home daycare is less expensive to start, making this reason the single biggest advantage home daycare has over daycare centers. Starting a home daycare with a capacity of 5 children can cost you as little as $1,000 in equipment, supplies and learning materials such as arts and crafts, toys, and books.

    Operational cost is less. Your operational costs will also be much smaller compared to a daycare center. For instance, you have the flexibility not to charge rent to your business since it is your home that you are using. This also gives your business a higher chance to succeed.

    Parent preference: one-on-one interaction. Some parents prefer home daycare centers because a home daycare can only accept a smaller group of children, giving their child more opportunity for one-on-one interaction.

    Licensing requirements are less stringent. Licensing requirements for home daycare centers are often less stringent, making it faster to start the business compared to a daycare center.


    Limited capacity. Compared to a daycare center, the number of children you can accept will be limited by your local bylaws or state or provincial laws, and dependent on the space you can allocate for childcare services in your own home. Often the space you can allocate will be limited to one or two rooms in your house without the business significantly encroaching on the other parts of your home life. As a result, this limits your earnings potential.

    Family life mixing with work life. Running childcare services in your own home can potentially encroach with your family life. This can sometimes cause stress or issues with other family members.

    If you are ill. If you get sick, you may need to close your childcare services for a few days and notify parents about the situation. Aside from losing income, parents may become upset that they will need to urgently find alternative care.
