Being a Childcare Provider: Behind-the-Scenes

As a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM), you’re likely already a master at all the things that make for an awesome childcare provider. You probably already:

  • Make lunches
  • Play with your kids in exciting and engaging new ways
  • Put them down for nap time
  • Preparing your kids for school with learning activities

All of these things you do everyday for your kids can help you bring in some more money for your family!

Another perk to opening your home for other kids: endless playdates with your kids’ new friends!

Speaking of Income…

When it comes to the finances, COAD4Kids – New Philadelphia is giving you tons of resources, support, and assistance, for FREE. In an effort to provide more childcare availability for families in Tuscarawas County, they’re doing everything they can to ensure you have the best chance of success in your new business.

Here’s your earning potential:
  • You set your own prices.
  • If you offer private pay, that means you collect what’s owed from parents directly.
  • If you sign an agreement with JFS, you could be earning these amounts* from JFS for each child:
*This is the maximum amount JFS is willing to pay for care; however, this doesn’t mean this is ALL you will get for a child’s care! If your rate is higher, then you would have parents pay a copay, while collecting the rest from JFS.
  • You can offer part-time or full-time childcare. Though most families are looking for full-time care, you could take on part-time as well!
  • Your rates are also affected by your Step Up to Quality rating. Click the link to learn more.

And Finally, Let’s Look at Your Expenses:

Your expenses are A LOT less than you think! You can:

  • Get reimbursed for most food expenses.
  • Reduce costs by having families provide diapers/wipes, etc.
  • No real estate costs if you provide care in your home.

However, you should also consider slightly higher utility expenses and the new expense of liability insurance.
