Figuring out how to work with your landlord is a very confusing and tricky proposition for folks starting their own child care in their home. Interestingly enough – it’s actually pretty simple.
In California, a landlord cannot stop you from starting a child care in a home you rent or lease. A Homeowners Association (HOA) cannot stop you from starting a family child care in a condo you own, or a home that you own within a community. This is because the State of California wants to encourage individuals to start family child care homes.
They benefit communities and neighbors, and landlords tend to overestimate the issues associated with an in-home preschool in the community.
