How to Start a Daycare E-book

Calling all daycare providers, current and future! I'm working on an e-book to help potential providers start a daycare. If you have any questions that you have not seen addressed (or at least answered to your satisfaction) in other books, websites, or forums, please let me know and I will try to include it in our publication. I want this to be written "by providers", "for providers". Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Employer-Sponsored Child Care Makes's List of Top Trends in Child Care recently released their list of the Top 12 Trends in Child Care for 2009. Number 4 on that list is:

Corporate child care is raising the bar in terms of quality child care. An increasing number of companies are either offering (or considering) in-house child care centers as a perk for attracting and retaining top employees. In addition, more companies are partnering with child care centers to offer discounted rates or even special hours for employees. Some developers are even focusing on including a child care facility as part of master planning of new areas, knowing that having a quality child care center nearby will make the area more desirable for both employers and employees alike."
