Record Work Hours When Children are not Present

There are things you must do to manage your child care business even when children are not present in your home, such as cleaning, paperwork, and so on. Use KidKare to record the number of hours you spend doing business activities in your home when the children in your care are not present. These hours will then be added to the hours you care for children to calculate your Time/Space %.
