A number of different grants and loans are available for prospective daycare business owners, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. Resources are available for both operational and start-up costs as well as improvements to existing daycare businesses.

The U.S. Small Business Administration reports that more government resources are being made available due to the increased need for daycare providers. The loans and grants search tool on the site includes a section for childcare, and it is a useful tool for locating available loans and grants for the purpose of starting or enhancing a daycare business.
