Child Care Business Institute

The Child Care Business Institute was held on July 15-16, 2004 in Kansas City, Missouri with thirteen professionals from resource and referral agencies, licensing staff, current directors and owners wanting to create a child care business. Our furthest participant came all the way from the state of Washington!! A testament to how difficult it is to find training on the business aspect of running a child care center. The Business Institute covers topics such as writing a business plan, developing a marketing plan, creating budgets, and writing policies and procedures. The course will be offered again next February. Continuing Education credits are available for this course. Look for the 2005 dates and registration information for both the Child Care Business Institute and the Early Childhood Facilties Design Institute in next month's eNewsletter.
