Childcare Business Training Course Set Until March 16
The Business Outreach Center Network (BOC) offers the Child Care Business Development Project (CCBDP) to individuals who are starting or expanding an in-home childcare business. This free training helps home-based childcare providers plan and run a successful childcare business by offering a nine-week, 45-hour comprehensive program of business training and professional support.
Licensed home-based childcare providers offer care to more than 50,000 children throughout New York City in small group settings. They are licensed and inspected by New York State and must complete a minimum of 15 hours of childcare education and training each year. CCBDP training hours can be applied to hours required for New York State. The training is designed to help providers plan for a successful business, market their program to enroll more children and manage the money in business to meet providers’ personal financial needs.
“We are very excited about this innovative collaborative project,” said BOC Executive Director Nancy Carin. “We think this is a good model to help women who are starting a home-based childcare business to succeed and realize their dreams of owning a business.”
Licensed family or group daycare providers, and individuals who are in the process of applying for their daycare registration or group daycare license are eligible to apply for a space in the training program. Open enrollment will continue until March 16.
