So how to run a daycare business? You need the necessary supplies, furniture and equipment and a foolproof safety regimen.

1. Each child should have their own sleeping cot or bed. Portable cribs or pack n' plays are needed if there are infants or young toddlers.

2. High chairs and/or boaster seats are a necessity.

3. Donít forget toys to entertain them! Consider their safety and whether they are age-appropriate.

4. Classic staples such as blocks, rings and balls are a good choice.

5. Choose toys that encourage physical and mental development.

6. For play time, there should be space for general play, space for relaxation, and easily-cleaned space for art projects.

8. Safeguard all substances, equipment and objects that are dangerous for children.(e.g.-firearms and ammunition, cleaners, medication, alcohol, and matches and lighters). They should be out of sight, out of reach, or locked up.

12. Ensure that you and all daycare providers CPR and First Aid certification.
