Hello, we are considering moving to the Atlanta area (possibly within a year), and I am planning to open a Home Daycare business. Does anybody have information on the following:
1. Licensing
2. Best suburban areas where my services would be needed. We are looking at Snellville, Roswell, Alpharetta. If you can suggest others, that would be great; we are looking for low crime, family friendly areas.
3. What are the average costs for daycare in the Atlanta area?

Thanks so much for your help!

You forgot the biggest issue of all -- Zoning.

Many, many communities don't allow home daycares and you can't get licensing if you can get city approval. You need to call the planning departments of each city you are looking at (or the county, if the area is unincorporated) to find out what restrictions home daycares may face and if allowed, what is required.
