Note: This course is for participants who have taken Westcoast’s 20-hour Responsible Adult course and would like to continue their career in child care by opening their own family child care business.
Through interactive sessions, this 15-hour course guides participants to explore best practices in family child care as well as basic business practices like how to project a family child care business budget, record keeping, organising expenses and paperwork to be ready for tax season. We will identify and review policies and procedures needed in family child care and as a final assignment participants will create or review and update their own parent’s manual containing their centre’s policies, contracts, daily schedule, programming, etc. (i.e. Parent Package). Suitable for registered or licensed family child care providers who would like to refine their administration skills and/or review their Parent Package.
