O.K. this is along the same lines as the last thread, so i am throwing out this question to all you working moms and daycare providers. I have been caring for children in my home for years. I took the classes to become registered, but never got my home inspection. After I heard of all the things that were not alowed I decided that my home would have to be altered too much to be registered. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I have these doors that have glass in them and they would have to be removed. I would need a new tv stand, as that has glass door. I could not use my upstairs and we play up there sometimes. There were quite a lot of other things, so I said forget it. I hate having someone pop in unexpected anyway. I have two families I care for and it going well. I just wonder, why I should become registered? What is the point, except to have to charge more for my services, because I have to change so many things?
