Family Day Care

Home daycare, also known as family daycare, is daycare in a home instead of a center. For as long as parents have had friends, family, and neighbors nearby to help care for their children, there have been home daycares. Many parents prefer to stay home to take care of their children and contribute to the family finances at the same time by taking care of other children. Permits and licensing requirements for home daycares vary from city to city.
