Applicant runs a daycare?

One of my apartments has an opening, and I have a solid applicant (family). Dad has a job, mom runs a licensed daycare and they were expecting to use the apartment to continue to do so. It obviously adds income to their bottom line and they've provided a State of NJ registration/license to operate that appears good until 2022.

Anyone aware of any laws, issues, concerns with allowing this to operate? I have boilerplate language in my leases that say you cannot operate a business, but frankly this is a business that helps the tenant with their financial situation. I'm also wondering how this might affect my insurance, or increased liability on my part, in the event things are not hunky-dory for any reason.

Would welcome other NJ landlord/owner thoughts, thanks!
