The Strengthening Business Practices training series supports both center-based and family child care providers in their efforts to strengthen their knowledge in three key areas – fiscal management, marketing and staff recruitment and retention. These trainings reinforce the belief that sound business practices improve the sustainability of child care businesses which support program initiatives aimed at improving outcomes for children. Each of these training sessions provides foundational concepts around terminology, reporting, and processes.

Participants will learn how to implement project approach into a “study” utilizing the block or building center in their program. We will take a look at current block area environments and alter the setting according to children’s interests around a child-led study. The content will be inquiry-based, using critical thinking skills, reflection, and various investigative approaches, and will connect to the Montana Early Learning Standards, as well as integrating engineering design principles. This 10 hour course will be broken down into a series of 3 classes. Participants will also be expected to implement a Building/ Block Project with-in their programs throughout the series, and document the project to share back with classmates in the final class.
