Learn the ABCs of running a childcare business

Interested in becoming a family childcare provider? Learn how to get started at a free class offered through the Childcare and Youth Training and Technical Assistance Program (CYTTAP) in collaboration with University of Vermont Extension at three locations this October.

The three-hour class will cover various aspects of running a home-based daycare including the pros and cons, financial aspects, and ways to childproof a home and supervise children of different ages and stages of growth. Participants will also hear what other family childcare providers have done to develop a successful business and get suggestions for caring for children from military families. Frasier Zahniser, a CYTTAP instructor from Penn State, will teach the class.

Workshop dates and locations are as follows:

Oct. 10–Northwest Counseling and Support Services at the Family Center, 130 Fisher Pond Rd., St. Albans; 6-9 pm

Oct. 11–Central Vermont Medical Center, Conference Room 3, 130 Fisher Rd., Berlin; 6-9 pm

Oct. 13–Child Care Resource of Chittenden County, 181 Commerce St., Williston; 9 am-noon
