I think this is a good idea and very practical. Of course you need to get a license. A license will not only show your qualification, but also will protect your rights in case. As to how to getting a license, at least it should be no harder than getting a degree in CS; Plus, the atmosphere in daycare is so pleasant, kids' happiness can bring you happiness too. As for the space, find parners, get a loan and buy a house. You can live upstairs and use the downstairs as the classroom. This small business will save you enormous amount of tax money
The only obstacle I see is if you really love kids and enjoy teaching youngsters. Before you start your own, you need to get some experience and learn how the daycare is running in Canada. If you see this as a business opportinity, not just to earn some income for your food and shelter, if you keep trying to learn new curriculums, learn new activities, learn from other daycare center, go to conferences.., you will success. Child education is a big field, if you really want to improve yourself, you can even pursue a Master and higher degree in child education.
Depending on what you want to do for your life, I see this as a good alternative than studying CS which may not be your cake.
I know many examples of how people succeed from openning a daycare, especially those blacks and hispanics. There is no racial discrimination here, I just want to say as a new immigrant, adjust yourself to the new country and focus on develop your lifelong career is the most important.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
