I just randomly stumbled into this question and actually my wife operates a daycare out of our home in Centreville, VA. There are also several commercial daycare centers in the area. My wife is a state licensed home daycare provider and has been doing it for about 7+ years. Pretty much all the children are referrals and second or third children from parents who used her for their first child. She is licensed up to 9 children and she has an assistant who helps. Some of the parents had previous experience with commercial day care centers and they said their kids got way less attention and it was a lot more expensive. My wife watches kids from infant to around 4 years old. I'm not sure if I can post her website here but it is Centrevillechildcare .com or just go to yahoo and search for Superstar's Home Daycare Centreville. Hope this helps!
