You will need to have a kitchen space, eating space, appropriate number of bathrooms and changing stations, separate areas for playing, sleeping, and teaching/learning, controlled entry points, and a lobby or waiting area for parents. You will need storage for coats and bags as well as adequate space for sleeping and appropriate furniture i.e. cribs.

You should be sure that you have adequate spece for the number of children that will be in your care. Be sure the area is safe and secure. You can divide your are ainto different sections such as a quiet library are, as well as a, area for active play and to gather for circle or group time.

The number one priority is designing a small number of entrance and exit points to the child care areas. You need to insure you have the proper number of bathrooms also. Include a parent waiting area so that parents do not enter the child care areas.

The first obvious thing that needs to be taken into consideration when planning a child care center is safety. Children are huge safety risks, and when running a child care it would be your business' responsibility to take care of a potentially large number of those risks. Make sure there are NO sharp corners, etc.

You are required by law to have sinks with running hot water near all diaper changing areas, adequate bathrooms for adults and children, and toilets of a child's size in the toddler / preschool rooms. You need fire exits with full child proofing and at least two ways out of every classroom in case of fire.
