In recent months, we’ve been made aware of a critical shortage of child care options in the region, specifically in McCall, following the closure of local facilities. As such, there may be an opportunity for in-home daycare options for those looking for an entrepreneurial opportunity, or those with kids and a home that could safely accommodate some additional littles. Below we outline the general requirements to start up an in-home daycare.
- Idaho Health and Welfare Market Analysis
- Licensing Requirements
- McCall Business Licensing Info
- Permitting (McCall): For 5 children or less, no facility use permit is required (allowed use). More than 5 children requires a conditional use permit in residential zones, but not in commercial zones. All daycare facilities require a business license. We’re happy to assist with coordinating permits with the City.
