No, it doesn't sound like a great idea to me. I'm a home daycare provider, and I'd be concerned for a couple of reasons:
1) That I'm putting a target on my children's heads for whatever wackos are out there reading this stuff (and you KNOW there are some wackos scouting victims in this fashion)
2) That I'm putting myself and the children I care for in danger. I'm basically announcing that I'm home alone all day with several small children.
I am admittedly a bit neurotic about this stuff though - I keep the house totally locked up all day and we have a big 'mean looking' dog. LOL (he might actually lick the person to death - but they don't know that) If the doorbell rings, I even put the phone in my pocket and peek to see who it is first....just in case.
I mean - I am entrusted with caring for OTHER PEOPLE'S children!!! Their MOST precious things in the whole world, yk?
I just don't trust the general public like that. I give a nearby landmark for a location and ask that interested parties send me an email for additional information (like my literature or to set up an interview - at which point I will give my home address....but this is typically AFTER I have a personal email and full name and address of THAT person, yk?)
I do think that interested parties are entitled to personal information about your family when you CHOOSE to run a home based daycare, but I try to keep it about ME and some vague info about my kids - like - I have two daughters, (ages 7 and 3) the oldest of whom attends xyz elementary school and we live less than one block away from said school.
