Crack an egg, teach someone to drive a snowmobile, brew your own beer - Oregon cares. And it has a license for that. Business-owners in one of the most license-heavy states in the Union, need to carefully research the many requirements of their state, county and local governments before doing business. After all, you can't make an omelet without cracking a few eggs -- but you can't do that without applying and paying a fee.
In Oregon, an increasing number of single-parent and two-parent working families has turned child daycare into a big business. However, states, counties and cities take the welfare of children seriously. Daycare owners and workers must undergo background investigations and in many cases mandatory training courses. Governments license both home daycares and daycare facilities, making sure that health and safety standards are met.
