Participate in the National Launch of the Strengthening Business Practices for Child Care Providers Training-of-Trainers

The National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance (ECQA Center) is pleased to host the National Launch of the Strengthening Business Practices for Child Care Providers Training-of-Trainers series. The training sessions are intended to support states, territories, and tribes in meeting the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program regulation about strategies to strengthen the business practices of child care centers and family child care (FCC) home providers and to improve the supply and quality of services.

Each training session includes a trainer’s guide, extensive trainer notes embedded in PowerPoint slides, handouts, lists of additional online resources, and activity materials. Sessions will last from 2 to 3 hours and can be delivered individually or as a series. The sessions were well received in seven pilot-test states and are designed to maximize audience interaction and peer-to-peer learning.

The four topics included in the training-of-trainers series are:

  • Budgets, projections, and planning
  • Financial reports and internal controls
  • Marketing your program
  • Staff recruitment and retention.
