Napa County Entrepreneurial Child Care Training.
Napa County Employment Training Office, CA.
A multiagency project designed a program to train participants to become licensed family day care home operators. Participant recruitment was conducted by means of a flyer, advertisements in the help wanted section, community service announcements, press releases, and notices to the high schools. The program recruited 43 potential family day care providers. After a self- and home-assessment, 35 family day care providers. received the training program, which included both instruction in the basics of licensing, home preparation, marketing, parent contracts, budget and recordkeeping, marketing, child development, health and nutrition, positive discipline, and community resources and coaching in the family day care home setting. The training program was an 8-week course that met once a week for 3 hours in the morning. Seven trained participants received revolving loan funds for home preparations. Student evaluations completed during the last class were generally very positive. Three- and 6-month follow-ups indicated that 11 participants succeeded in opening their family day care home businesses. (Course materials provided to participants as well as loan application materials are included.) (YLB)
