Library Journal Review

Finding legal, honest, and trustworthy home day care for babies and small children is one of the toughest challenges facing parents today. Child care is also quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing businesses, with demand continuing to outstrip supply. Included here is a complete listing of the rules and regulations one needs to know and the licenses and contracts one needs to have to provide licensed day care as well as an explanation of what parents should look for when seeking outstanding day care. Experienced day-care provider Simmons also gives pointers on how to build and maintain a business, pass state inspections, market yourself and your business, and work with government agencies like Public Aid. Shari Steelsmith's How To Start a Home-Based Day Care Business (Globe Pequot, 1997, 2d ed. o.p.) presents similar points while adding activities for children, solutions for common problems, and ideas for future planning. As this is a popular type of home business, Simmons's book will be especially useful in public libraries.--Susan C. Awe, Univ. of New Mexico Lib., Albuquerque (c) Copyright 2010.
