Child Care Business Lab Get Licensed: Facility Cohort

March 2 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

COHORT IS FULL – Please sign-up to be notified of future cohorts.

After completing the Child Care Business Lab Explore program, graduates are invited to participate in the Get Licensed program.  

The Child Care Business Lab Get Licensed program is cohort-based so you are learning alongside others with similar dreams and facing similar challenges. This group is focused on those interested in opening a child care in a Facility outside their home. You’ll get just as many great ideas from your colleagues in the program as you do from the experts we bring in to lead each workshop. In addition, you will work one-on-one with a business advisor to tailor what you’ve learned in the group sessions to meet the needs of your community and your family. 

Our Child Care Business Lab Get Licensed program teaches you all that you need to know about small business start-ups. You will: 

  • Write your own business plan 
  • Create a 3-year cash flow forecast 
  • Hear a variety of perspectives about children’s activities & curriculum 
  • Learn hiring secrets 
  • Get tips on how to enroll children while working with the State’s Child Care Affordability Program 
  • Share ideas with others about family & employee policies 
  • Get help to find start-up funding 
  • Be coached through the licensing & fire marshal inspection processes 

The Explore program must be completed before joining Get Licensed.
