    Steps I need to take to open an unlicensed private dayhome in Alberta

    I am a new mom to an almost 5 month old and I am seriously looking into opening an unlicensed day home in Lethbridge Alberta with a good friend of mine who is a new mom to a now 7 month old. I think the two of us together would make a great team to run a day home. We have no idea on how to go about it. Any help would be great.

    Do we need a business license?
    can we claim any of the food on our taxes?
    are we paying into taxes?
    is a day home something people do as a team?

    any additional information anyone can give me please feel free to give.

    Based on what? Seriously, I interested.

    Based on one of you having a business degree?
    Based on one of you having a degree in child related services?
    Based on vast experience dealing with children?
    Based on knowing how to organize a group of children, of mixed ages, and help them grow?

    I ask because you appear to have zero information about the very basics of tax information of a self-employed person which is readily available on CRA a location which every day Canadian's know of.

    I ask because the only qualifier you have mentioned (and I accept there might be others) is being new parents to one child each for a matter or mere months.

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
Updates
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
