    I guess you could put a sign out with the name of your daycare during the week, and wheel it into the garage on weekends?

    Are you asking about a room / area inside the house to use as daycare and then have normal home on weekeneds? or the outside of the house? Inside I'd use lots of built ins or cabinets/ with doors to store items/ toys in bins etc that can be a wall of closed cabinets and drawers on weekends if doors open and slide back on the sides they would be out of the way. store folding chairs and tables in a closet. Have Lockers or cubbies along a wall for the kids coats/ bags etc, with maybe a roll up shade or long drapes to pull shut when not needed. s o a wall of cabinets with doors and a wall looking like a large window or patio door when closed. custom made table that changes levels up for weekend dining, down for kid height during the week

    I'd suggest checking with your local Town Offices regarding permits, license, and safety requirements and check with your insurance company regarding liability coverage. Room size and emergency egress may determine the number of children you are allowed to have in your home at one time. Best of luck.

    Find items for both scenarios that are easy to cover or put away. For example, pillows. Keep some nice ones in a closet during day care hours, then bring them out on weekends. That's an easy one, but with some thought, the change could happen often and easily.
