Family and Group Business Training

Attention Family and Group Child Care Business Owners!  Spots are still available for Raise Montana’s upcoming Family and Group Child Care Business Series!

Series will run every Tuesday, April 4th – June 6th, from 6-9pm.

The Family and Group Business Series is a 10-week series designed to cover key aspects of running a home-based child care business.  Designed to support adult learners to have positive and successful learning experiences, you will leave with the knowledge and relationships to sustain and grow your family child care businesses.

Each week of the Virtual Business Series features:

⧾ 30 minutes of independent pre-work, guided by a video lesson

⧾ 2 hours of synchronous, live learning over video

⧾ 1 hour of “learning lab” time in a small collaborative group

In addition to 34 hours of professional development, participants will also receive a training materials box with surprise treats and resources.

Research on family child care indicates that providers who utilize effective professional and business practices are less likely to experience personal and professional stress and more likely to view family child care as a career. They are also more likely to provide a high quality learning environment and interact more sensitively with children
