It’s no secret that finding quality child care is a challenge right here in Tuscarawas County. For most providers, there are waiting lists as long as months or (sometimes) years to get their kids in. If you’re a stay at home mama, opening your home and being a childcare provider may be the thing you need to grow income for your home AND service a need here at home!

Four Reasons You Should Be a Childcare Provider from Your Home

If you’ve been thinking about a career change for your New Year’s resolution, here’s four reasons why you should consider being a childcare provider:

Reason #1: There’s a DEMAND for childcare.

Tuscarawas County is full of working parents that need quality childcare while they work. Since the demand is so great, you know you’ll have steady work right from the get-go. Plus, unlike working for someone else, you won’t have to worry about being laid off because it’s your business. You’re numero uno!

Bonus money-making opp: Did you know you could earn a $30 gift card towards groceries or gas by completing this self-paced parenting class?

Reason #2: COAD4KidsNew Philadelphia will help you get started in this new venture, for free!

COAD4KidsNew Philadelphia has programs to help you pursue your CDA (Child Development Associate) while getting paid for your education, help you get your business started, and much more! You can learn more about these programs by contacting COAD4KidsNew Philadelphia by calling (330) 364-8882, emailing, or visit

Reason #3: You set your own hours and rates…

Since people work varying schedules, you can bet that there are parents with a need for schedules that aren’t your typical 9am-5pm! If that’s who you’d like to cater to, by all means, set your schedule that way. However, if you’re not a morning person, consider offering childcare for those who work second shift! You can even offer a part-time child care schedule if you’re more interested in doing half days. Additionally, you can set the rates for the children you care for and get paid weekly by JFS!

Reason #4: …And have endless playdates for your own little ones!

Your littles may be too young to be in school, but that doesn’t mean they can’t socialize and have friends! Being a childcare provider means an opportunity to have endless playdates for them to make new friends. Plus, you’re making money while they get to play. Win-win!

COAD4KidsNew Philadelphia is ready to jump in and help you get your new business started. If starting a business in child care isn’t for you, you can utilize their tool to find quality child care near you!
