This class is designed to help you establish and implement business practices that improve overall program quality, covering information on contracts and policies, recordkeeping and taxes, money management and retirement, marketing and community/parent relations, legal issues, and your role as an employer. Attend six Saturday sessions over a 6-month period and receive 42 hours of formal training credit.
