From Katie (Ohio USA):

Wow!! I just had to tell you...this is the best site I have ever seen for home daycare providers. I have been doing this since 2004 and often look things up online to help me improve my business, but this is the best by far. THANK YOU for the wonderful stuff here! I am so pleased. I will definitely be implementing what I've found here into my program.

Both beginner and long-time home daycare providers will want creative ideas for keeping all those little hands busy and learning. Your goal is to make your own child care business unique and interesting. That's why Simply Daycare offers a large selection of activities. Here you will find creative (and low cost!) ways to make play and learning fun for all the children in your home daycare.

There are also those issues that all child care providers deal with. Look in the Daycare Tips section for assistance on potty training, guidance issues, building self-esteem, a special area for new providers and more.

Browse the site at your leisure. Take your time. Check back often as new items are continually being added. The information on this site will give you everything you need to know to start and continue to operate your own unique home based daycare.

Best of wishes on your new or current home based daycare.
